Plant ID

Asked May 29, 2016, 1:36 PM EDT

I got this in 2014 from the MG plant exchange. It grows 12-18 inches tall in moderate shade, flowers in August on multiple stalks of tiny bright red flowers. Has reseeded freely in my garden.

We wonder if this is in the persicaria (formerly polygonum) family. Maybe persicaria 'Firetail'.

Your surest bet for i.d. though is to contact the members of your MG group who shared it.
