This plant is growing by my campfire wood pile, I've been referring to it as my Triffid, because it looks like it's getting ready to walk away. Here's the whole plant:

And, a surprise: the seed pods "explode: when you touch them:

With all the talk about Japanese Knotweed, Giant Hogweed and Wild Parsnips around here, I am genuinely concerned (not about walking killer plants from planet Zork).

Any thoughts?

Does this look like your suspect?  If so, pretty as it may be, it's pretty invasive, too.

The foliage doesn't seem right for a wild legume. I don't know what it is. I think I have never seen this before.

Maybe I could train a few Tribbles to eat the Triffid.

I found the source: the guy three houses away has a large clump at the corner of his yard. it is listed as "invasive", but it doesn't seem to be on the same level of Giant Hogweed yet. I wrapped mine in a large plastic garbage bag when I cut it down, then added a bit of RoundUp to the stump. I have tied the (black) bag closed and I have set it in the sun to bake.

Its DEAD Jim.
