Why It’s Here

Published by at 7:30 am under Plants

This month Japanese knotweed (Polygonum cuspidatum or Fallopia japonica) is showing off another reason why gardeners imported it.

The flowers have become delicate white seed pods perched above the symmetrical leaves.

Too bad it’s invasive.

    Luckily Japanese Knotweed is both edible (http://joshfecteau.com/eating-japanese-knotweed/) and medicinal (check out Stephen Buhner’s Lyme Protocol)!
