Bistort

A couple of days ago I spotted Persicaria bistorta (Bistort) by the roadside at Breakish on Skye.

It looks like a garden variety to me, with large inflorescences and short stems.  Some of the stems held two  inflorescences, which is also unusual for the wild plant:

Sorry about the poor focus – it was blowing a hoolie.
