from taiwan, squarish stem, take root by cutting, edible as cook dish; taste smooth.
kind of grow wild in asia country, it like warm and sun; then it will spread everywhere.. not like rapid fire of course. but here it is not that spreading, because cold in germany.
can snap the stem and use it as root cutting.
no fur.. clean smooth leaves.
