This hogweed sounds like its from Horgwarts.

Whatever you do, don't sing "Burn, Baby, Burn!"

It only encourages them.

The Return Of The Giant Hogweed

Turn and run
Nothing can stop them
Around every river and canal their power is growing
Stamp them out
We must destroy them
They infiltrate each city with their thick dark warning odor
They are invincible
They seem immune to all our herbicidal battering

Song writing credits, 1971, Genesis band members: Peter Gabriel, Anthony Banks, Steven Hackett and Michael Rutherford.

I keep trying to tell people that "Little Shop of Horrors" is a DOCUMENTARY.

This may be the star of the next PBS installment of "Plants Behaving Badly".

The Hogweed Hots
I've got the Hogweed Hots for ya babe
I took a shortcut through the brush
Just to hold you close, babe
Now I'm a real hunka, hunka burnin' love

Babe you're hotter than any ol' weed burner
You're a real head turner
But the Hogweed hots have got me so smokin'
I goin' to need gallons of calamine lotion
