Notes:

We sprayed this with weed killer all summer, then dug up the roots, but they won’t go away. They grow incredibly fast maybe 1 ft a week sometimes, like the full sun, alternate leaves, were 5-6 ft when we moved in last year. not milky or thorny, roots spread out and in clumps right below the ground.

    Thank you for your quick reply… I have been obsessed with trying to figure out what this plant is. Hopefully we can figure out how to get rid of it. Wish us luck, looks like we’ll need it.

    I wonder if you’ve discovered why the previous occupant left. Compare to Japanese knotweed. http://www.walterreeves.com/gardening-q-and-a/japanese-knotweed-mexican-bamboo-identification/
