Flowering weed

Stiff stemmed, erect plant. Has self seeded aggressively! Doesn't seem to have any virtues, though I'm happy to be corrected...

no such thing

There is no such thing as a weed just a plant in the wrong place for us humans,every plant has a purpose learn to love them.If you had lived in the 15th century you would have carried a root around with you to stop powerful charms against evil spirits plus hung some over your door,the root was also ground down and used as a fly repellent plus flavouring ale
