Fallopia bauldschuanica   Russian Vine C DD I

Fallopia bauldschuanica

This introduction from Asia is fairly well distributed throughout England but is not as well known in Ireland, Wales or Scotland. It does seem to escape into the uncultivated or waste ground near gardens but unlike other members of this genus like Fallopia japonica (Japanese Knotweed) hasn't really made the status of nuisance weed. It isn't difficult to identify with its climbing habit and white flowers which come into bloom in mid summer.
