    The bamboo-like stuff or the rhubarb mimic?

    Yikes. The Bohemian knot weed doesn't resemble bamboo until it gets some height to it. Definitely not a bamboo leaf, but does have the hollow jointed stem like bamboo.

    I've been battling little outbursts of it along a clients property boundary and this spring found a 5 foot tall stem growing up next to a shrubby trees trunk that was invisible when the tree was leafed out. It's pernicious and tenacious. And sneaky!

    i get knotweed but I don't consider it a weed. It makes good rabbit fodder. If your soil isn't hard it pulls right up. Usually has only one taproot.

    Wow I can feed it to Harvey ? Starting to love it. gets pretty tall about 5 feet. I never minded it because grows along fence giving privacy. Just never knew what it was.

    I can't see real clearly on my phone, but I believe that is Mock Orange. Does it smell nice?
