Japanese knotweed was introduced in Japan in 1825 as an ornamental plant. The plant is not unattractive but its rapid annual growth and relentless spread, allow it to easily overwhelm other garden plants. Where established as a wayside weed, native plants are also aggressively over-run.
Although it does not produce seeds, it can sprout from very small sections of rhizomes and, under the provisions made within the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, it is an offence to cause Japanese knotweed to grow in the wild. Much of its spread is probably via topsoil movement or construction traffic
