Not rhubarb...

Asked May 22, 2020, 12:59 PM EDT

We moved into a home in September 2019 and initially thought this plant was rhubarb. Now it’s sprouting what looks like broccoli this year. Wondering if it’s some sort of weed or poisonous plant? Thanks for any help!

It looks like collards. Brassicas are biennials. they produce leaves one year and flower stalks and seeds the next. they don't often come back the second year here.
unless you want to save seeds I would remove it.
