I'VE NOTICED THIS GROWING WILD IN MY PROPANE GARDEN. I PULLED IT UP BECAUSE I DIDN'T NEED IT WHERE IT WAS GROWING. BUT IT SEEMED A SHAME BECAUSE IT WAS SUCH AN INTERESTING WEED. TELL ME MORE ABOUT IT

Rockledge, FL(Zone 10a)

It is very very invasive, as you have already found out.
For more, please SEARCH by the Scientific Name using any of the Search Engines.
Thanks.
