Japanese Knotwood

In a previous post way back at the end of last year, we looked at Japanese Knotwood, Polygonum cuspidatum . At that time, we could see branches loaded with seeds. My best guess is that the birds cleaned them up over the winter, leaving just a few behind.

I'm so interested in the interactions between plants and animals. In fact, I am thinking about the possibilities of insect interactions. might all be over my head to get into all that here...

We have looked at a couple of galls, but that's just a tiny sample of insects' influences.
