    It's called Polygonum Bistoria Superbum. I've been trying to find somewhere that stocks it around near but no luck yet.

    Thankyou for your solution. I'll check in local nurseries. If i find it, I'll let you know.

    Sorry Jam975 but it is not a Polygonum but as mentioned earlier a Persicaria.
