    This plant intriques me. Please, someone tell me something about it. It is very large (around 4 feet tall and wide) and is growing next to the South side of the house. I can't get any grass seed to grow due to how fast the soil dries, but this plant has really taken off. I sure would like to now what it is and what to do about it before it goes to seed. Attached are some pictures.
