Japanese knotweed - changing the name

What’s in a name? Fallopia becomes Reynoutria

C. Stace: New Flora of the British isles (4th Edition; available from all good book stores!) have now changed the name of Japanese Knotweed to the Latin name Reynoutria japonica. Scientists have researched and the recommendation is brought about by new DNA analysis. Don't worry Longfield Knotweed Solutions will still be here to control the plant regardless of the name change!
