Japanese knotweed identification help

Support our chosen charities with Japanese knotweed identification

Japanese knotweed is the UK’s most aggressive and invasive plant, however it can be tricky to identify.

Commonly confused for plants such as Russian vine and bamboo, knotweed wreaks havoc when it comes to buying or selling a property, and can create issues between neighbours. It is especially hard to identify over the winter, as the knotweed lies dormant waiting to re-emerge in the spring.
