I have a few of these growing down here in Roscommon and this year they seem to have done really well. Today I picked some of the flowers and put them into a jug with Persicaria and foliage from Smoke bush ...very happy with how it looks.... Spent today in the garden cutting back and tidying up ..Graham is still not able to do anything because of his injured leg so it is going to take me twice as long this year to get it all finished... 

Can anyone ID this please

I have this plant a few years growing in a pot, it completely dies down in winter. I have no idea where I got it from or what it is called. On the open day nobody knew what it was either.  This is what it looks like right now, I love the colour of the stems.
