Please help me to ID this invading weed
« on: April 17, 2017, 11:17:38 AM »
This weed is invading a portion of my land.
It grows very quickly straight on gravel rocks and limestone and it's extremely heat and drought resistant.
It's roots are ENORMOUS and disproportionate compared to the plant size especially when it's still young.
It's difficult to remove, any piece of root left in the soil will eventually sprout back.
Any idea of what is it?
