- Knotweed stems grow to a maximum height of ~2-3m. They are green with red/purple speckles. They are hollow. They have clearly visible nodes between stem sections, which makes them look like bamboo. The leaves form an alternate zig-zag pattern along the stems. The leaves can be identified as green and flat with pronounced mid-ribs and veins, as well as being a unique heart/shovel shape. In summer, you can also distinguish this invasive plant species by looking out for its clusters of small creamy-white flowers.
