it has under ground root system so its going to be a hard job but your going to have to dig it out making sure you don't  break or leave any part behind as it will re-grow,its up to you if you use chemicals  I rather avoid.In the olden days they used as the brillo pad of its day.

would anyone know what this is please.

Mulch for clay

try well rotted leaf mould and garden compost and dare I say it peat and keep digging.My soil is very heavy clay and it has taken  years of input to the stage it is now where when not sodden it is very good but it needs consent in put and breaking up.I include seaweed ,comfrey ,nettles and drowned weeds,its certainly a challenge.
