Is this plant Japanese Knotweed?
Can someone help please?
we have had this shrub since we moved in 2 years ago.
last year it was just a stick about a foot high. I put in some new plants and cut it down to the ground and forgot about it. I let it grow up this year curious of what it is. It hasn't flowered, just foliage so far.
It's leaves are quite thin and floppy and grey and velvety underneath. It's stems are turning reddish and are rigid, strong and upright.
I'm heard it maybe a shrub honey suckle but my sister said it looks like Japanese Knotweed!!!
Can anyone shed any light on this mystery plant please? ????
