I would like some help identifying a plant. The leaf structure is like PI, yet there are none of the other characteristics. It is late fall in Wisc and this plant is still mostly green. There are no seeds or "hair" on the stem. The stem is red and has a white chalky substance toward the bottom. It seems to grow as one stem with multiple leaf clusters alternating up. I have recognised PI (and been infected) on our property. I am concerned that this may be just a different form. I have photos that can be sent. I have reviewed photos on this site and others, but none seem to get a really good "close up".
