First stems of Japanese knotweed seen in 2019

This is the first stem of Japanese knotweed I have seen this year. It’s a bit too early to start to treat it, but clearly it’s going to be a growing year after the mild winter we have just had!

You have to admit it is a lovely flower.  Don’t worry its rarely spread in this country by pollen in the flowers.  Its spread either through cutting down the stems and not disposing of it in a safe manner or digging up the roots and again not disposing of it in a safe manner.
