Erumpent – bursting through or as if through a surface or covering; tending to grow out vigorously from a substrate so as to burst through or rise above its surface; prominent; projecting from or bursting through host tissue; breaking forth.

(Hat-tip, Ele Ludmann)

I'm looking at a tin-bath filled with erumpent Japanese knotweed. It's a beautiful sight.

What do you use the Japanese knotweed for?

It's edible, but mostly I use it to terrify pest-plant officers.
