Tubular hollow sstem

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?

    I am sorry to have taken so long to reply. I am not a gardener so I had to see what it did. It is invasive and I am removing it, but it is actually a pretty plant
