Notes:

Here are some closer pictures of the leaves, stalks and seed heads. At one time, someone had told us it was called “Flowering Tobacco” or “wild Tobacco”. But I have not found anything named that that looks like this. Really tough to get out.

    In Alaska they call it “Alaska Rhubarb”. In Ohio, “Yellow Dock”

    The leaves look like a Rumex but most pictures I see of Rumex show the leaves clustered at the bottom of the plant and then stems shooting up high to seeds. That is not the case with my plants. The leaves go nearly all the way up.

    Looks like Rumex crispus, Curled Dock. http://keyserver.lucidcentral.org/weeds/data/03030800-0b07-490a-8d04-0605030c0f01/media/Html/Rumex_crispus.htm
