Kiss-me-over-the-garden-gate, Smartweed, Östlicher Knöterich. Shorter variety of this extraordinary tall annual. The plant has large heart-shaped leaves which create an exotic and impressive sight. The top of the branches curve down with a load of flower spikes of many rosy red blooms. Best when direct seeded in the garden, as germination is challenging.
