I live in Virginia suburb of DC, a couple of seedlings of these plants poped up in spring and now is end of June these are getting to 4 feet high.  No sight of any flower buds so I guess they will keep growing. Just curious what they are before I cut them down.  Thanks.

If you're afraid you'll die from pulling them, just wear gloves. geez..... Anyway, tntreeman is right - If they go to seed, you will have a blue jillion of them next year. Posted: 8:01 pm on July 2nd

tntreeman writes: those are pokeweeds, check the photo previously submitted and you see the giant roots they have. cutting them down will do nothing as they will return with a vengeance. they have long chains of flowers which then become purple berries that stain everything, birds love them and you will be blessed with bazillions of them next year. dig the root out or dare i say it,,,,,,roundup kills them fast Posted: 1:50 pm on June 28th
