Help identify this weed

chrisbrooklynJune 4, 2012

Hello all,

This weed grows in my boyfriend's parents yard. They are having a very difficult time identifying it and preventing it from growing back.

It like to grow up in the middle of bushes/flowers they've planted, and it seems to happen mostly under/near a tree that spans between their yard and their neighbor's yard.

Does it look familiar to anyone? I've looked at a bunch of weed identification sites and haven't seen anything that looks like it.

Thanks for your help,

Christine

Your plant is kind of difficult to make out but compare it to Epipactis helleborine.
