    #3 in original layout appears to have 2 perky little stamens - is it a Veronica?

    Thank you for putting me out of my misery!!!!Really cross that I didn't spot the Polygonum bistorta, syn Persicaria bistorta.Completely fooled by the pyramidal shape of the flower spike,ours are a complete cylinder shape.With us the leaves really remind me of dock leaves, Rumex obtusifolius, so your leaves didn't help!
    Photo is the garden cultivar P. bistorta Superba.

    Woohooo! and also I'm kind of smacking my head over here - our Persicaria are also cylindrical. Hm.
