    Google 'Pink Knotweed', Polygonum pensylvanicum, or 'Lady's Thumb', Polygonum persicaria, and compare them, and see if either of those is the same plant as you have.

    Yes! I even remember the hairy sticky stems now, after reading the description. Could be either one, but more like the Pink Knotweed.

    Thank you!
