I have this growing on a good portion of our land in east Texas and though it seems to not affect other natives it does pose a threat to everything I care about. It grows all in my greenhouses, my cactus beds, my corn, my grapevines, driveway and just about every other place I tend to. I pull it and more come back so I pull them as well then it comes up in mass quantities all around the same area. I have tried to dig it out only to find the root to snap off before finding the end. I just want it gone and out of my sight.
