Help with a weed!!!!!

Asked July 27, 2016, 8:52 PM EDT

Help! I have a very aggressive weed growing in my yard. I have tried EVERYTHING to get rid of it. Is there a way I could send a photo to help identify it and get advice on how to get rid of it? Thanks, Susan

The attached picture suggests that is is possibly common pokeweed which is very prevalent in PA. The link below provides a detailed description and treatment options for many of the common weedssuch as pokeweed. The picture provided suggests it might also be a sucker from a nearby tree such as a pear that can be very difficult to eliminate. If you are uncertain that it is pokeweed after reviewing the link below please submit additional pictures to assit in identification. Thank you,
