Anyone know the name of this?

Does anyone know of a propagation year planner pls?

there's a 'what to do now' at the top of the page here. You have to adapt it to fit. If it says March and you're still under snow, call it April

I've got a lovely palish pink persicaria, no name about 3' which never falls over, unlike the darker pink one which always does. Just bought 'Inverleith', darker and shorter and hopefully more upright
