    Looks very much like it to me, esp. with that piece of root!
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Yes it is, dig it out, don’t break the roots or it will grow all along it!

    Thanks guys. It’s only a small patch in the garden of the house my sister just bought. Going to break the news gently and buy her a bottle of glyphosate for a housewarming present.

    I sprayed some with glyphosate once, good for 1st year, next year it was back, I find the only way is to dig it out. And keep on top of it.
