Any piece of it will regrow.apparently if you strim it, the stuff goes viral
not that I would ever be stupid enough to do that would I ???
i grasp it by the root and pull it out
another 80 years and it will all be gone
one of the oldest plants on the planet as well
When they replaced the dock gates in Preston they found Mares tail roots 80ft down in the mud.
If you try and pull it out it just snaps at one of the bamboo type sections and then regrows, same if you weed kill it, it just shuts off that section and regrows the year after. the only way to get rid is to dig every last little bit out and burn it.
