Default New Mystery Weed, Central Ohio



What is this going to be when it blooms? It seems to be it ought
to be identifiable from the leaves and a bit of many-petalled yellow
flower, but I don't see any good candidates in Newcomb's Wildflower
Guide, which usually means I'm looking in the wrong place.

Stalk is thick, green with red streaks, and there's versions of the
plant that are 2-3 feet tall already, but just in one area of my
bike wanderings.

I'm photographing now because the yard owner is likely to cut the
things down suddenly one day, and then it will just be a puzzling
memory.

Maybe some cabbage or something.

The leaves are the same all up and down the plant, alternate, lobed.

Probably Golden Ragwort.

I dunno. You're right, the flower is ragwort-picture matching, but the
leaf is wrong.

There's no basil leaf difference I can see on any of the plants
(growing in a roadside ditch, partial shade) from the upper leaves,
and the leaves are all pretty consistent in shape, a series of
round bulges.

Newcomb depends on basil leaf differences to distinguish them,
which in this case is annoying, since nothing matches.
