weed or flower

IMG_8957 I've seen this cute weed/flower along the riverbeds as well as on the edges of people's properties.

Apparently it is called persicaria capitata or himetsurusoba in Japanese. On Wikipedia, it said that it is also known as knotweed or pink bubble persicaria.

I like the pink bubble name...do you have something similar where you live?

Pretty! What we call Japanese knotweed in Maine is an invasive weed. It's sort of like bamboo and very difficult to eradicate. People are encouraged to eat it when it's young.

Never even heard of it, but if it's a week, it's pretty.
