Help to Identify

bryna123(z5 N.S Canada)September 23, 2012

Hi all.

My daughter in law needs to identify this weed from her backyard for a biology class. The picture was taken a few days ago in Nova Scotia. We can't seem to find any that looks the same online.

Any suggestions? Appreciate any help!

Uh, oh. Likely Japanese knotweed. A very bad thing. And challenging to eradicate without helping it spread further.

Compare these images, then go from there with the research.

Yes, I'm sure you are right. It was even in my weed book but the picture did not look anything the same.
Thank you!
