Can we see some pics of it growing please ... From the side view.
Looks very like Japanese Knotweed. I do hope I'm wrong.
Was thinking the same myself Hosta....but didn't want to say it, in case I was wrong.
That's why I wanted a side view ... that angularity of growth is best seen side on.
Have a read of this. It may frighten you but it will point the way forward - https://www.rhs.org.uk/Advice/Profile?PID=218&cID=1037
Injecting weedkiller directly into the lower stem is the only way. I saw a council employee doing that self-same thing in Carmarthen on Wednesday.
Thanks for the help
