Mine was here when we moved in in 1982 and has been moved and split several times. Gets little or no attention.
I think "weed" is an accurate description.

I have one word for you rhubarb people. Piestengel. After you google that and read a few threads, you'll understand why the Amana Colonies, 15 miles from our home, is a regular stop for libations. Goes down easy and convinces you that you have superhuman strength for a couple of hours.
