What is Japanese Knotweed

What is Japanese Knotweed?

What is Japanese Knotweed?

Japanese Knotweed is one of the most aggressive weeds in the UK, growing up to 2cm in a day with bamboo-like stems that can reach 4 meters in height.  It produces heart- or shield-shaped green leaves and flowers in late summer to early autumn.  Japanese Knotweed has an underground root system (rhizomes) that can extend down several meters deep and it is the invasive nature of these rhizomes that make it so difficult to eradicate.

A single fragment of rhizome as small as 1 gram can produce a whole new plant.  Japanese knotweeds shoots can quickly exploit weaknesses in brick, tarmac, even metal piping, causing costly and severe damage to everything from buildings to roads and garden structures.
