PrairieGirlz, The leaves look very similar except the varigation on mine is white whereas the photos I found for Polygonum persicaria L. appear to be dark. I will leave this 'Unsolved' for now.

Thanks much.

Okay, but did you scroll down and check all the plant synonyms? Maybe it's a different one.

Sorry, forgot to add link.
