Fallopia Adanson. Subfamily: Polygonoideae. Tribe: Polygoneae. Subtribe: Reynoutriinae. Climbing Buckwheat.

Key to Fallopia

A genus of about 9-10 species, woody and herbaceous vines, of temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere. If accepted (as here) as a genus distinct from Polygonum, this group takes the name Fallopia Adanson (1763), which has priority over Tiniaria (1832) and Bilderdykia (1827). Reynoutria has sometimes been included. The genus has two sections, supported by morphological and molecular evidence (Desjardins et al. (2023).
