Mystery plant

Does anyone know what this plant is please?

Sorry about the fuzzy pic! The plant appeared a few weeks back in a wooden plant holder that had fuschias in. Its about 14" tall, long, thin leaves and pretty, unusual, pale pink flowers.

    As pics a bit blurry, would suggest you google himalayan balsam.
  • It's definately not Himalayan balsam, the flowers are completely different, it's much shorter and leaves smaller image

  • Definitely a weed - I know it but can I remember the name....someone put me out of my misery!

  • Eureka!! Persicaria maculosa

  • Thank you Daintiness, I looked it up and yes you're right .......but no such thing as a weed, only a plant in the wrong place  image   It's very pretty.
