Can you identify this plant for me?
This plant is growing along the side of the road near me.
It grows in a large colony made up of many individual plants. Each plant is about 8-12" tall.
The leaves are about 6" X 6". They aren't exactly hairy, but have a strange suede like texture. All the leaves originate from one base - there is no branching and no flowers that I am aware of. The whole colony has expanded very quickly.
The stem has a rhubarb like color near the top and the plant has a tap root.
Any help will be appreciated. I know this is probably a weed, but I would like to know what it is.
Thank you all.
