If you see a bamboo-like shrub with reddish stems at the edge of your yard, take note and do not cut, dig or mow it. It might be Japanese Knotweed, a plant that is invading areas of Michigan and poses threats to natural areas and developed property.
The plant spreads rapidly when it is mowed or pulled. If it gets close to a home or road it can sprout through foundations, roads, sidewalks and even damage sewers. Specialists rely on treating the shrub with specific herbicides to kill existing infestations and prevent it from spreading.
