Is this tall plant a weed or flower?
Can anyone tell me if this tall plant is a weed or flower? This is our first year in our home and I am trying to re-do the front flower bed. I left this because I wasn't sure what it was. It looks similar, though not the same as the goldenrod and other natives we have in the back, so I thought it might actually be something nice. I *did* bump into the tap root when I was planting some other things, though, and could feel that it's very thick, so if it's a weed, I'm in trouble. Also, as it's somewhat of a centerpiece in the front, our neighbors must think we're morons if it's a huge weed, lol!
