Rough Hawkweed is a tall wildflower which has a tall central stalk and a fluffy protrusion of flowers at the end. In October these flowers turn into wisps of golden dandelion-like seeds which disperse in the wind. The leaves are along the central stalk singly, offset from each other as they go up the rungs.
Many people strive to eliminate hawkweed from their lawns because the plant emits chemicals which stop other plants from growing. I.e. the hawkweed wants to be the king of its jungle :).
Apparently hawkweed likes acidic soil so one solution would be to balance the pH of the soil better. Rough hawkweed is found all over the eastern side of the US, down to Georgia. It is a member of the aster family.
