I have a pretty plant in our garden that has beautiful foliage, creeping (ground cover), beautiful in a container/pot as well, and it blooms during Autumn (see image) .. have been researching its name at various garden centres and online but failed to find the name. My neighbors cannot ID it as well .. attached are two images with one that has a closer look of its foliage and the other with the flowers. Thank you for your insights and cheers.

    Persicaria affinis 'superbum' I would say, or another similar cultivar..  one often seen is called 'Dimity' but that's redder usually... or 'Donald Lowndes'..

    I can't see the foliage well, but it looks like you have 2-3 plants in the area. The pink flowers look like Persicaria Amplexicaulis 'Rosea', but the leaves don't match.

    Thanks Marlorena and Bordeline. 

    I just added an image with closer view of the foliage from the plant i have in a container/pot. Seems like the closest is  Persicaria 'Donald Lowndes' (may be wrong) - just comparing the shape and looks of the foliage ..

    Silver Surfer, that is right... Persicaria vacciniifolia, it has the type of foliage, traits and flower shape and colour. thank you.

    Well done Silver surfer. For some reason the close up picture of the leaves only loaded now...
