Persicaria 'Red Dragon'

Persicaria 'Red Dragon'

This is a good old faithful that came from my sister-in-law as a tiny cutting. It grows at a fast rate and needs chopping back several times during the summer.

From a distance this looks like my Lysimachia firecracker?

Having looked again I think the leaf is too big for Lysimachia. More like a Persicaria?

Thank you for your help - it has been bugging me that I could not find the name of it - even asked at my local nursery. Have checked Persicaria on google and it is indeed the same plant called 'Red Dragon' so I have now titled my photo correctly. Many thanks
