    To me, it looks like tobacco, large single leaves, reddish-purple tint in the stalk. Grows like a weed (ha!) couple inches a day.
    I've seen em over 6 feet tall. Not woody, very fiberous, meek little guys w/shallow root system. Can pull em easy enoungh, some of them will just lay over if I rev my FS110 near 'em! :D

    Do you have any pictures of this weed?

    It sounds like something I have ran into before, do the shorter, younger plants kinda look like asparagus?
