if you mean japanese knotweed, Polygonum cuspidatum, it's been
spread by idiots to southeastern alaska, as well as the pacific
northwest.

In our area, we call it Japanese Bamboo, our more commonly just
"bamboo." It's so hard to get rid of it. It grows right back after
pulling or flattening. Did this plant overpopulate in Japan?

It seemed like this newsgroup would have people all over North America
that would see this weed at home or in their travels to tell me.

A big piece of property wasted to knotweed.

This neighbor put up a fence.

Even after a mow, this pesky stuff grows back.
