Many people throughout the UK have enjoyed imports from Japan such as electronic calculators, the walkmen and many other items they are famous for. In the mid-eighteen-hundreds, the knotweed plant was brought from Japan to be apart of the Kew Gardens. It was immediately liked by many because of its close resemblance to Bamboo.

As gardeners began to plant it, they enjoyed how easily it took to the garden and grew without much effort. As it turns out, however, its ability to grow and spread without much care is also what became the major factor in making many people want to get rid of it. But because it is a survivor and a plant that can grow easily, it can only be removed from an area with expert care.
