Japanese Knotweed (Fallopia japonica)
Japanese Knotweed (Fallopia japonica)
This invasive weed was introduced to this country in Victorian times by plant collectors, who found it an attractive plant. However, it migrated from private gardens to the wild and it is nowadays a serious problem, particularly in Cornwall. It is very difficult to eliminate because of its ability to regenerate from small relics of tissue. LinkExternal link. It is quite widespread on this particular area of old mining waste.
