Hi, Trying to decide whether to keep these in a perennial garden. Kinda eliminated dandelion and chicory from the possibilities but not 100% on that. Leaves foot long or more and no flowering yet. If anyone has suggestions I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks, Aaron
There is a dandelion by the boot which is much smaller and has already bloomed. This plant shows no blooms or flower buds yet. Although, this late I'd think docks would be in bloom too. They are here and chicory is blooming too.
With forty shades of green, it's hard to be blue.

I'm leaning towards dandelion or chicory. There are a lot of different varieties of both, some bloom at different times of year, some don't bloom every year. Some leaf dandelions can grow ginormous in the right conditions, with the right soil, in the shade. If it is a tasty dandelion, you may have people begging for seed.
Might be Sow Thistle. We have them here and they look like 6 foot tall dandelion plants, yellow flowers and big puffy seed heads. Seem to pop up over night. They are related to dandelions so that's probably why they look so similar...

Thanks for the responses. Dandelion, chicory, dock- I guess I can't go wrong. But appears I'll need to wait and see if it flowers to ultimately know for sure. Thanks again
