What is Japanese Knotweed? It is a fast growing, invasive weed. Although, its appearance can be deceiving! It is attractive to the eye and to many insects. This is due to its large heart shaped leaves, red stems and small white flowers.
However, don’t be deceived by its appearance, it is very invasive and can lay dormant for over twenty years! Its foliage can grow at a rate of 1.2 metres per month and the roots or rhizomes can grow out several metres from the original stand.
