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

    Persicaria amplexicaulis Rubie Pink...has flowers that are all deep pink.

    While Persicaria affinis has deep pink and pale pink flowers as seen in Eustace pic.

    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.
