Most asked about plants part 2

One of the most frequently asked about plants in my garden was Persicaria (or follopia), sometimes also known as Painter's Palette.  I have a few different varieties in my yard.  Some people from the Southern states might see it, and think, "Oh My, you put that weed in your garden!"  But here in Wisconsin it is very well behaved.  Tomorrow I will post the most frequently asked about trees and shrubs in my yard.
