Hallo, Junglewanderer!
I really really hope I am very wrong. My first thought is Japanese Knotweed, a terrible invasive around here.
Hopefully the experts here will disagree with me!

If it is Japanese Knotweed (Reynoutria japonica) - formerly known as Fallopia japonica, it's considered invasive in many countries: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

Around here this plant really took over along the Saddle River and killed just about every other vegetation. Whenever we see this plant starting up on our own place in NE Pennsylvania, we go after it with a Machete, repeatedly!!
I highly recommend going after it to eradicate it and not let it take over!!
