I cut it to the ground in the fall and in spring it comes up. The thick stems are hollow when I cut it back. Their are smaller plants just like it that pop up in other areas of the garden. I usually pull them out. There are fat, black bugs that begin to eat the leaves this time of year.

    Maybe the variegated form of the Japanese knotweed, Fallopia japonica var. compacta ÔMilk BoyÕ aka Fallopia japonica ‘VariegataÕ? According to sources it is known to revert back to solid green. Link below helpful information. Best wishes!
