.... but should I invite it in and offer it a drink it or give it the elbow?

It's in the border at the front between me and my neighbour which was completely full of a rather dull flower I've spent all summer trying to eradicate.  It looked pretty for 2 days then flopped everywhere. It had roots heading for the antipodes and I can do without another thug!

    A type of amaranth I think.

    Reddish leaves underside and then red tassels later.

    I had Amaranthus hypochondriacus (really) last year , and its seeded all over.

    I googled and hmm - having just got rid of a lot of unwanted plant life I might just show it the door.  Thank you very much.

    The birds like the seed heads.

    But I'm not sure I do if they spread everywhere.  No doubt a bird accidentally imported it in the first place image
