Japanese Knotweed was introduced to Britian in 1825 as an ornamental plant. Soon after its introduction it became established in the wild and is now very widely distributed.
It is a vigorous perenial plant and spreads laterally by the extension of its rhizome (underground stem). If left untreated the rhizome can expose weaknesses in asphalt or concrete and cause structural damage to buildings.
