Japanese knotweed (Polygonum cuspidatum)
02-DEC-2006 Dave Beedon

Japanese knotweed (Polygonum cuspidatum)

Renton, Washington

In response to Steve's question I did some research, which yielded the name and details of the plant.
The orange "leaves" are seedpods from last year's growth. It is an invasive plant in this area.

This plant was identified for me through the generous help of Rebecca Alexander of the
Elizabeth C. Miller Library ( ) of
the University of Washington's Botanical Gardens ( ).

it's pervasive-which I think is a contraction of "perverted" and "invasive"

Dave, what's the plant with the red leaves? Inquiring minds want to know.
