I think it might be rhubarb.
Looks like wild shard! It lays dormant until you till the soil and then it comes up every where!
This is not nut grass. It's pretty but it looks like it is a seed spreader.
I'm with Aimee. Looks like rhubarb to me, too. The flower stem is just like it.
What color are the stems? Can't tell from the pictures.
I have to agree with rhubarb...
Yes, pretty sure it's rhubarb. If you want rhubarb cut the flower stalks off & keep cutting them off until they quit coming up. It prevents the plant from putting all its energy into seed production.
It looks like rhubarb that has gone to seed!

looks like rhubarb....cook it up delicious..cut off flowers...
dont know what it is but i like the idea that it flowers
i have it coming up every where in my new home was hoping for rhubarb as I love it. No flower, pulled up one stock a little pink but smelled like very green like a weed. Think it has been here for many years this is an older home and I can tell past owners loved there yard. If it is rhubarb when will it be ready topick.
Looks like rhubarb to me. My parents always raised rhubarb and it looks like the older ones that have the green stalk. Stalks are edible but not the leaves. They say the leaves are poisonous
Take a sample of it to the county extension office. They should be able to identify it.
It is definitely rhubarb and boy are you lucky! Rhubarb is not always easy to grow. When the stalks are a foot or taller, break, do not cut, the stalks off. You can cut the large leaf off and discard. It is poisonous but makes a great insecticide so put it where ever you'd like to kill bugs. DO NOT EAT THE beautiful leaf. The rhubarb stalks can be green or pink or red -- all are delicious. Go online and find a great strawberry and rhubarb pie recipe and you will be in heaven. We make and sell about 150 jars of strawberry rhubarb jam - also easy to make and very tasty. Make sure you cut the seed parts off or just like any other plant that goes to seed, it will stop producing the stalks. When you cut the stalks, leave a few behind. The plant will keep producing rhubarb as long as you don't completely cut it all at least through the summer months. And it will come back next year. If you don't like it where it is, gently take a shovel and dig it up and replant. It needs sun but will get about 2 feet x 2 feet if you let it grow to it's complete height.
Be delighted. You are one of the lucky ones --- not every part of the country can grow this early summer plant. Lynn at Fern Valley Farm
I would say it's rhubarb to?
Yes, it's rhubarb, you should cut off the seed/flower stem so that the plant will maintain its highest quality and maximum yield of tasty stalks. There are soooo many great recipes for rhubarb out there - ENJOY!!
This is a rhubarb plant.
Yummy!! I grew up in ND, where we had rhubarb plants that were as old as the homestead- 70+ years & still delicious!
