Identifying Japanese Knotweed

we have noticed an invasive weed making its way through the wall of our neighbours garden.

It grows very very quickly and we have concerns it could be Japanese Knotweed.

Pictures attached. No flowers anywhere that we can see. Is anybody able to help me identify what it is?

    It's not Japanese knotweed. It looks like very rampant bindweed to me.

    My vote is for a very healthy bindweed too!  You need to talk to your neighbours anout controlling it their side of the boundary or you’ll spend all your time removing it from your side.

    Regular pulling of bindweed keeps it well under control
  • Thanks all. Good to know it’s not Japanese knotweed. Just need to get it under control.
