Not plants I know well, just passing through... Do you still have it? Did you ever get a pic of the bloom?

I brought this plant from my old garden. I love the height it adds to the garden and the variegated foliage. But knowing that the straight species has a bad reputation as soon as the flowers are opened I cut them off. It has never moved from the spot I planted in. Yes, this should be moved to Fallopia japonica.

Looks like the variegated one?
Variegated Japanese Knotweed (Reynoutria japonica 'Variegata')
(and now a synonym, hard to keep up!)

Is that an entry for a named cultivar or any variegated form? With the apostrophes, it looks like it is reserved for plants with that specific cultivar name.

Yes, that's a cultivar name but there are not many varieties and that was the only one with that variegation coloring.
