oralee, sorry about responding so late. But I treat the Polygonum as an aquatic species and so it wet most of the time. It generally dies back but I have just looked to see what I could find (910PM) and there is one with a just a red lead at its tip as showing the effects of the cold weather but the base of the plant is protected by a large rock and a large pot and has a few young growths that are still green. With adequate water the stems are somewhat succulent. Drier and they become scraggy. Leaf size is also affected by the amount of water the plant has access to.
