Notes:

Plant dies down to the ground in winter. Stems emerge in spring and resemble bamboo. Leaves up to 5″ long. Flowers late summer into early fall. Not sure it the plant makes any fruits or seed capsules because the homeowner has only lived there since March. Flowers very attractive to bees, butterflies and birds.

    Looks like a clump-forming selection of Japanese Knotweed. I found the red flowered form listed as ‘Crimson Beauty’ Mexican bamboo (Polygonum cuspidatum).
