Persicaria maculosa

Growing in the margin of the pond, (well, growing at the edge of the muddy holes in the ground at the bottom of the plot), quite a lot of examples of this plant. I had no idea what it was, and whether it's been attracted to the pond, or was there hitherto. Thanks to Twitter in the person of Enviro Bytes, it's suggested that it's Persicaria maculosa, which also rejoices in the name of spotted lady's finger. Leaves might work on a salad.
