Humanity doesnt have any change. so step back.

Here's of example of how I unknowingly let a noxious weed go wild in my area. I bought a beautiful flowering pot of mixed plants one year. I put the pot away after the plants froze in the winter. In the spring, surprise, one of the vines was still living. I put in in another pot and it lived through another year and multiplied. I have a bank on the side of the house and thought how nice it would look with this vine dangling down the side of it. Within 2 years it had covered everything and moved into the neighbors yard and beyond. It is resistant to any kind of removal and can even push out ivy.. Well, I did learn a big lesson about noxious plants, which is what we call them in Washington state.

thanks for sharing
any idea what it is?
hogweed maybe?

www.goodhousekeeping.com...


What's 14 feet tall, green, hairy, and covered in toxic sap? It may sound like a monster, but this scary beast is actually giant hogweed, a towering, invasive plant whose sap can cause painful burns, scarring, and possibly even blindness.

Originally from the the Caucasus mountain region of Eurasia, researchers just confirmed the presence of this federally listed "noxious weed" in Virginia for the first time. The state now joins Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Michigan, Illinois,Washington, and Oregon as hosts to this non-native plant.

Sorry, mistaken identity. But why isn't everyone just eating rabbit there?

I don't know about knotweed, but rhubarb leaves are, indeed, poisonous.

I hunt an invasive species regularly during the fall. Chinese pheasant. Escaped the hunting preserve they were originally brought to in the early 20th/late 19th century...and have, quite merrily, spread all over the country. As near as I can tell, they've caused no great havoc.

Domesticated dogs will be invasive when there's no dog food on the shelves to buy them. ..
