Notes:

Hello I am looking for the name of that invasive weed. Large leafs, grows in colonies along road sides and ditches. Once established outgrows everything. Flowers in very early spring before any leafs come out. Small erected yellow flowers a bit similar to dandelions. Got this weed with a load of top soil. It is non stop work to get rid off by pulling out each plant as it grows. Must have taken out thousands of plants.

    Wish I could see the flowers. Maybe coltsfoot (Tussilago farfara)? Check it out and see if you have a match. Best wishes! https://www.fs.fed.us/database/feis/plants/forb/tusfar/all.html
