My get ahead of me neighbor planted these plants outside her yard fence.

A couple of years I had some and eradicated them because us farm folks thought they were Mares Tail.

I have been outdone by a Retired Lady School Teacher, on ID'ing plants.

It sure looks like mares tale to me.  As it matures it gets very tough to cut with a weed eater.  Even with .95 or 1.05 string it will chew the string right off.

Looks like a weed to me. 

Shouldn't tell this but wife went in to help clean up kids landscaping a couple weeks ago. Was proudly telling me the area she cleaned up. Couple days later we were both in at kids house and it did look nice but I pointed at a plant and said I thought you cleaned this up? She said I did why. Well how come you didn't pull up this milkweed I says. She says is that what that is? We thought it was suppose to be here. It had a pretty purple flower. I said yes that's what it is. Also another plant I see growing in the pasture was residing in landscaping  too........same deal. ??‍♂️

There was a guy who was a crop scout for Agway around here 20 years ago. He was at the state game lands and saw the most beautiful rhubarb plant and despite knowing it was illegal he dug it up and transplanted it in his garden where it blossomed into a huge burdock ;)

Around here along I-80 the Iowa highway dept waits until all the thistles are ready to go to seed before they mow them. Because the purple flowers are so pretty and they are considered natural.  Yep, natural all right. Until they are all in your pasture.

We need to keep the milkweed or we won’t have any monarchs.

There are more than a few milkweeds that escaped destruction in the pasture.....tho I don't recall seeing many butterflies for a few years....

Mares tail for sure. KFC in Sioux Falls a couple years back had them springing up in the rocks out front. Wanted to pull in and pull them out.
