Caption: Fallopia japonica. Syn;Reynoutria japonicum Polygonum cuspidatum. This rhizomatous perennial invades habitats primarily through vegetative reproduction though the plants are known to produce abundant showy displays of tiny white flowers followed by abundant amounts of seed. Japanese Knotweed is native to Asia and was first introduced to Europe in the mid18th century by Phillipp Franz Balthasar von Siebold a Bavarian physician in the Dutch East Indies Army. Siebold stationed in Japan smuggled two shipments of Asian plants home to Europe and among these was F. japonica though at the time it was known by a different name. From there cuttings were introduced into England and by the late 18th century were being sold in nursery catalogs in the United States (Townsend 1997).
