If you know invasive plants could you reply to this comment? A reader has commented on an older post about an invasive plant she can’t identify. I don’t recognize it from her description, but maybe you do.

If winter is slumber and spring is birth, and summer is life, then autumn rounds out to be reflection. It’s a time of year when the leaves are down and the harvest is in and the perennials are gone. Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year and it’s time to reflect on what’s come before.

Could it possibly be pokeweed? http://www.altnature.com/gallery/pokeweed.htm
My aunt use to eat the young leaves but I have only dyed wool with the berries.
