Notes:

I have never seen a plant with such a strange tuber/root before. Can you identify this species? Without leaves, I know it is a little tough.

    actually, the tuber makes it easy: Florida betony.

    Can I use your photo here?

    Thank you for the info. I see that it is quite a problem species to get rid of, and will take care to purge this unwanted visitor. You may use the photo any way you like, especially to benefit others with the same problem.
