I believe a bamboo plant seed was in a container of phlox that I planted several years ago. The first year one stalk grew at the back of the phlox plant, the next year more and this year I have at least 20 stalks that are fairly tall. Can this be identified as to the type and if invasive? Seems to be expanding.

@Calif_Sue, can you split this into its own thread?

@lillys7, I'm not sure what that is what its not bamboo. Can you add where you live and some closer photos?

To me, that looks like Dogfennel - Eupatorium capillifolium
