In The Pink

Live blogging from the Japanese Knotweed Symposium at Cornell University...perhaps the height of geekiness for me this year.

There was a good talk this morning from Christopher Militscher, an EPA guy in Raleigh, North Carolina - yup, they've got knotweed too, and sometimes it's pink. Sounds like the pink-flowered variety (photo above) is starting to show up more frequently in the wild, but so far only in the Southeast U.S. If you've seen it, let me know - there's some biologists I know that are itching for samples :-).

Triple bonus points to ISW reader Allan I. for making the drive here, all the way from Boston!
