Tubular hollow sstem
Leaves look green with white paint spatters
Looks like a weed to me, but it has very pretty leaves

    It’s a variegated japanese knotweed
    (Polygonum cuspidatum variegatum)

    Japanese knotweeds are generally considered bad news… yet when I googled this one… seemed like people are still offering them from the plant nurseries…

    So you tell us… Just how invasive is the variegated form?
