Fallopia Adanson. Climbing Buckwheat.
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 is sometimes included.
