Is this a weed?

Asked August 17, 2019, 11:54 AM EDT

This plant has continued to grow and thicken and I wasn't sure if it was a perennial or a weed. It hasn't flowered.

Anoka County Minnesota

Hi, This is curly dock. Most people consider it a weed. It has a long tap root that should be gently teased out to keep it from breaking off (or there will be a new plant): https://www.minnesotawildflowers.info/flower/curly-dock

Thank you!
