I bought this plant quite a while ago and the label as disappeared. imageAny ideas what it is as I would like to plant it in the right situation.

Thought it began with the letter L image but have trolled through my books and can't find anything beginning with L that resembles it!!

Thanks.

    Shot in the dark, but could it be Leycesteria? Normally has pink flowers though, but can't think of another 'L'!

    It looks like a persicaria red dragon, but not very well. Does that ring any bells?

    Thanks but I'm sure it is not a Persicaria...and not Leycesteria either. Forget about the 'L' ... putting that down to a senior moment! image

    Could you show a close up of leaves and also of flowers?

    We used to have enlarge function but its gone.

    Hi Fidgetbones, I have just realised that there is no zoom function anymore- very frustrating!

    Sorry, this picture is a bit blurry.

    I haven't been on the site for a while and am shocked by the changes. I like the camera icon but the rest will take some getting used to....

    Still looks like one of the leucothoes
