... adorable Persicaria affinis with its sweet, long-lasting flowering from June to August of short, light-pink to blood-red spikes as they mature. It is also the smallest, as it only grows to 25 cm high. The foliage of Persicaria affinis 'Darjeeling Red' also has attractive purple-red highlights in the autumn.
