Tall, thick, red stalk with tentacle-like leaves! Help!

jessinpiner(6a)May 5, 2010

So I just cut this thing out of one of my flowerbeds. I can't dig a root up right now without completly demolishing a very mature hosta. I will most likely keep cutting it down until this fall once my hosta foliage dies back (I need to divide up this plant, anyways).

Anyone know what it is? Almost reminded me a rhubarb, but it's definitely not... I think. Haha.

Appears to be polk but need a picture of the leaves. Makes a, to me, tree like structure when mature. However birds like the fruit and will spread the seeds. One of our native plants.
