Tall, leaves feel succulent and resemble gladiolus or iris somewhat. Very thick roots.

RE: Weed ID

Perhaps one of the invasive irises? Iris ochroleuca?

In any event, if you don't want it, get rid of it before it takes over.

RE: Weed ID

Cattail? It looks like it is growing in a ditch, and the bottom appears to show a round "stem" where the flat leaves come out of. Are the leaves white inside and are spongy?

RE: Weed ID

Yes, they are spongy. I do think it is a cattail. Kind of strange since the nearest one is about 1/4 mile away.
