Good Morning.

I think its a member of the Cheese Plant, however I cannot seem to pin a name on it. Its grown outside and it spreads very ramplantly. Grows long stalks in late summer.

Thanks

Looks like a form of Bears breeches (Acanthus).
Pretty hard to get rid of if you don't desire it, as it resprouts from any missed root fragments.

Possible Acanthus mollis.
