high invasive potential. Should not be planted, as naturalizing exotics is a major ecological problem

Highly invasive plant. Close relative of the Japanese knotweed, even small cuttings will root, and it is very difficult to eradicate.

Neutral jody On Aug 31, 2001, jody from MD &, VA (Zone 7b) wrote:

Flowers mid summer to early autumn. 40-50', vigorous and rampant, but attractive and fills a space quickly.

Frothy sprays of tiny pink tinted flowers are followed by small pinkish white fruits. Foliage is darg green and heart shaped.
