Red Stemmed plant, arrow shape leaves

Houston, TX

Supposed to be evergreen in Houston, TX area. The stems are red. The leaves have a red arrow point near the base of the leaves. The leaf edges are slightly serrated. It may spread. I got it at a plant swap.

Chevron markings on a leaf usually means trouble.

Thanks, I thought the gardens in HI were fabulous, esp.Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden on Big Island.

I have Persicaria capitata (pink bubbles) and had noticed the similarity in the markings. Seems like this one is Persicaria microcephala, Red Dragon.

Many members of this genus have chevrons on their leaves, and many of these are problematic invasive weeds, hence trouble in the garden.
