    It looks like one of the Persicaria family to me

    Leaves and flowers certainly right Ladybird, although I don't recognise it.

    He calls her the chocolate girl
    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver

    Persicaria can be a very attractive garden plant but this one looks like a weed form to me and not worth keeping unless you plant it as ground cover in an awkward corner.   The RHS lists over 100 garden worthy forms for sun and shade - https://www.rhs.org.uk/Plants/Search-Results?form-mode=true&query=persicaria

    i thought it was pretty unattractive - and all my awkward corners are too full up with cr**py plants already!
