I have lots of this.    Jump seed - Persicaria virginiana.  Mine blooms in creamy white, however, not pale purple as mentioned.

Dear Patricia and Milo,

I'm sorry your message was lost in my inbox until now.

This is not Polygonaceae.  The petiole appears to form a ring around the stem like Magnoliaceae, but there is no ocreae.  Could it be a young Lindera benzoin?

Kind regards,

We are working to figure out which invasive polygonum is in the photo below.

Any ideas?

Subject: What Is It?

Hello, Claudia.

My neighbor allerted me this latest invasion of our woods. This is a small green plant that has spread rapidly, and is shallow rooted. I have tried to use my 'plant identifier' app, but got totally confused. They eventually bear a small purplish flower on a spikey stem.

Would appreciated an identification, and some advice as to how to get rid of it. I am perfectly willing to pull them all up, but would appreciate a go ahead from you.
Thanks for your help.
Margo Sterling
