    I've not seen one in a while, but it does look rather like Himalayan Balsam.
    If it is, it's extremely invasive and should be disposed of before it sets seed
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    I agree โ€ฆ Himalayan Balsam. It can catapult its seeds over 6ft walls and occupy the gardens of a whole street within a very few years. Illegal to plant in the wild. PITA.ย
