Japanese Knotweed

Fidgetbones, overhere in the Netherlands they are considered to be perfect for architectural arrangements or just bound together forming a base for the arrangement. Several florists in my family use them and customers are always warned not to put them in the green bin or on the compost heap.

It's usually the stems of Japanese knotweed that are used in floral arrangements. Sometimes dried but also fresh stems.    http://blog.pottingsheduk.com/?paged=3 (scroll down to "Mysterious Aroid")

Carol, if the arrangements have fresh stems in them, please be careful when disposing of the stems and make sure they can't get composted.

Strange leaf? growing from the aphical meristem of apple seedling

Dahmendra, the white spots you are referring to don't look problematic to me. Just some  spider mite damage which at the moment won't do it any harm anymore because apple trees are deciduous so the leaves will be falling of soon. Hope this helps.

I agree with Landgirl100. It certainly could be an apple seedling and most probably it's a wild apple (Malus sylvestris) or a seedling from a crab apple. Here's a good image of a serrated apple leaf.

There is a possibility that this is Anthracnose disease.

What's this?

I think the plant to the right could be Mirabilis jalapa or Four o'clock flower.

Rosemary, would it be possible for you to upload a photo of the plant? There is a possibility that it's not a Parthenocissus quinquefolia. Does your plant get berries?
