Collected in the Mishmi Hills, Arunachal Pradesh this clump former produces clusters of pinkish red flowers on the tips of arching stems to 75cm. Good soil, part shade.

Broad fresh green foliage with faint chevron markings will turn bright reddish if grown in sunny positions.  We find it needs some shade and soil that doesn't dry out here but it will be fine with more sun in cooler, damper parts of the country.

Grown for several years simply as Persicaria 'Indian Summer' this has now been identified.

Syn. Polygonum auriculatum, Polygonum malaicum
