Persicaria amplexicaulis 'Inverleith' is a dwarf, growing less that half the usual height of this species, to only about 20". 'Firetail' grows to twice its height.

In other respects, both these plants resemble the species. All have an extraordinarily long season of bloom, from June till frost. The flower color is crimson rather than scarlet, a deep cool (blue-tinted) red.
