I've a well established patch of one of the tall persicarias, one end is perfectly OK the other end has suffered damage. I don't use weedkillers and it's nowhere that it could be affected by anyone else's. It was fairly weed covered until today. The weeds were healthy.

Near by I have another species of persicaria, also affected. But lots of others that look fine

something pee'ing on it in the night?

nutcutlet

I wondered about that Cloggie. Must be a new pee-er to the garden, never had anything like that before.

I think this one will survive it, not so sure about the new one.

A peacock wandered through once.

I've been pondering over this while I cleaned the bathroom ........ could it just have been nipped by frost/cold wind ...... I know they're hardy but new foliage of any plant can be a bit susceptible to the cold, and the ones I've seen do go brown in the winter ... and that end of the patch might just have caught a very chilly wind nipping across the East Anglian flatlands direct from the Urals.

Just a thought

Looks like frost damage to me.  I had loads of this round my pond in the old garden and one spring it was all but wiped out by sudden chilly blasts form Siberia.   Went all brown and nasty like that.

 Was it the ones ones you gave me, I can send some back😀

Dovefromabove

Nut's been sending you rats, cats and elephants?????????? 

Hope she doesn't send any here 

nutcutlet

I can't remember what I sent you Lyn. Not the little new one, I only got that last year. The other is tallish, up to 3'. light pink. Doesn't fall over like my red one. I think that will be OK though. One end is fine.

Dove, they were still hiding under weeds on Tuesday or you could have done an ID then. Or helped remove all that goosegrass and teeny weeny nettles that still sting

That's it then Nut ... the weeds were keeping them warm
