Description: Bugweed growing at the base of a Plane tree on a pavement in Braamfontein. One of a suite of common Joburg road verge aliens including Tree of Heaven (Ailianthus altissima), Black wattle (Acacia mearnsii), Silver wattle (Acacia dealbata), Robinia pseudoacacia, Populus X Canescens and Syringa. I don't think Joburg City Parks gives two hoots about removing them properly - they just get cut back from time to time as if they are overgrown ornamentals. Would take more pics but it's difficult to do that while you're driving!
