Red burrs on a beautifully leafed plant. What is it?

A place to figure out what it is BEFORE you poke it in your mouth.

Do you know how far down the tap root of licorice goes? There is a patch near my house but it is near a deep canal and the plants are a few feet away. I'm just wondering if they are far enough away that they're growing without getting canal water.

They are likely getting canal water as the water is quite pervasive.

Yeah, I'd find it in a wilder spot. At least you know what you're looking for now. :0)
