It grows in my backyards and in huge numbers. You can chop them down, but they will instantly sprout up again. I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO! They are tall, and the stem kind of looks like bamboo. The leaves are big and green.

    Maybe you can eat your Japanese knotweed?

    Yes, Japanese Knotweed. The largest female on the planet! LOL, but not kidding. Very very invasive plant! Dig every little piece of it out as you can, as soon as you can. It will spread and spread and spread!
