Frozen Knotweed branch at Coolroe, Portlaw, where there is a considerable amount of the plant growing by the roadside immediately apast Springfield House and a short distance before main entrance to Curraghmore. The plant - Fallopia Japonica - occasionally to be seen by the roadsides, is one of the most invasive alien plants in the country. Bearing attractive white flowers in summer and beautiful leaves turning yellow in autumn, it can grow up to 3 metres tall. Cutting it down can cause it to spread, as happened in this case when it was bulldozed about two years ago. There is a further roadside area containing this plant before you come to the last house on the hill to Clonagam. Check out GOOGLE for further information.
