    One of the Persicarias. Beth Chatto has a big range of persicarias, you should find one similar, maybe  Rubies pink.

    Mine start pale pink then mature to red.  The foliage goes red in autumn.  It's a great ground cover plant but it can get tatty in winter.  However, come spring, just remove  the dead leaves with your fingers or a gentle rake, give it a handful of pelleted chicken manure or BF&B and water it in very dry spells and it will be bonny again.
