Gee you think.
I should have posted pics of my patch. It was about 30 feet long and
10 feet wide and growing. I started getting worried that it was not
just some bamboo like plant despite the August blooms. When I found
out what it was I thought that I'd just chop it down, but boy does it
This year I've resorted to poison - heavy doses of roundup. I think
I've killed most of it. At least its not growing back with its old
resiliency. This stuff takes some stomping on to keep down.
The worst thing is that now that I know what it is, I can see it
The plant is at its weakest just as it flowers, hit it then, and
you'll get most of it. Then it's just a matter of followup on the
survivors. This is one plant I'll haul out the big guns (round-up)

That's a shame really because its flowering is its only redeeming
feature. It s amazing how many flying insects are crawling over the
plants gathering nectar, many that I've never seen before and can't
identify. Still its gotta go.
