    I'm afraid it's the infamous invasive Japanese knotweed. >:)
    You are invited to a virtual visit of my garden (in English or in French).

    Thanks folks,
    Just as I thought. I was 99% sure but didn't want to lead with a loaded question, sort of 'is this JKW?'
    Thanks for the confirmation, you guys are grate.
    No, @Nollie, not my garden, but the rear of a house I was asked to look over for a prospective purchaser.  
    Thanks for your very kind thoughts.

    Tell prospective purchasers not to touch the house with a barge pole.
    Many building socs will not give a mortgage if JNW in the garden.
    In that garden it will be everywhere with roots under the slabs.
    Possibly even coming up inside the house.
    Oh dear...not good.
    Very expensive to get pro's in to deal with it.
