Purple Loosestrife (Lythrum salicaria)

Yes, it's quite the unwanted plant here ( and lots of places).

My first encounter with it was 35 years ago in a private garden I was tending on Lake Calhoun. Didn't know what it was at first, but in the back of my mind, it seemed suspicious. When I identified it, out it went.
