JAPANESE KNOTWEED

(Fallopia japonica)
Himalayan Balsam is a non-native invasive species. The weed is visible during July, August, September and October. Himalayan Balsam is typically found around ponds and lakes, along riverbanks and streams, in ditches and wet woodlands. Himalayan Balsam can grow up to 2.5 metres in height and can project seeds up to 4 metres causing the weed to spread quickly. Himalayan Balsam has a red coloured stem and has large pink/purple flowers.
Giant Hogweed is widespread throughout the UK and is most commonly found on riverbanks, in parks and wasteland. It is highly invasive, stands at 20ft tall with white flowers and has leaves up to 3 metres wide. Giant Hogweed contains a toxic chemical within the sap known as furanocoumarins. When this toxic chemical comes into contact with the skin alongside the presence of sunlight this causes a condition called phyto- photodermatitis that causes reddening of the skin which can be followed by severe burns and blistering, the skin can then remain sensitive to light for many years.
 Japanese Knotweed is a fast growing strong perennial which was introduced to the UK from Japan in the 19th Century. It is often found widespread across roadside verges, riverbanks, woodland as well as towns and gardens. Japanese Knotweed is typically a tall plant, light green in colour with triangular shaped leaves and red hollow stems which are similar to bamboo. Japanese Knotweed can be incredibly destructive, often causing damage to roads, buildings and concrete.  
Crassula helmsii also known as New Zealand pigmyweed is an aggressive invasive plant. This species is one of the largest threats to ponds in the UK. The plant completely blankets the pond surface once established and dominates any available space. Crassula helmsii out competes native aquatic plants and forms dense mats which shades the underwater environment, depleting the water’s oxygen supply. This plant can even grow in the open on damp mud around seasonal pools.
