Kiss Me Over the Garden Gate

Have you heard of an annual called kiss me over the garden gate? Do you have a picture of it? I am trying it and need to know the proper care.

Kiss me over the Garden Gate, botanically known as Polygonum orientale or Persicaria orientale, is an old fashioned annual whose large six foot stature is sure to get passer-bys attention. The rose to purple flowers appear in late summer, have a light fragrance, and make great cut fresh or dried flowers.  The plant does best in full sun and moist soils.  It can reseed and is considered invasive in some states.
