Reading about is a bit horrific !..............  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fallopia_japonica


The root systems are tremendously big and almost impossible to dig out.

Dealing with it is extremely difficult it appears.

It is also now in New Zealand together with other types of knotweeds though not as extensive yet as in UK and elsewhere.  If it gets a hold in the native bush then the results will be catastrophic.
