A few years ago while visiting my cousin, I admired this lacy looking plant in her yard. She didn't know what it was but broke off a branch for me with the previous years seed still attached.
I brought it home and planted seed in several areas. It grows to nearly two and a half feet tall and is a beautiful backing for my pink snaps.
However, it is now growing everywhere, in all of the flower gardens in the back yard, in the walks and it even grows in brick and gravel.
I finally did a Google search and discovered it is Loosestrife, which is considered a noxious weed.
I am pulling it up from all over the place.
