Persicaria orientalis is a species of flowering plant in the family Polygonaceae,[1] known as kiss-me-over-the-garden-gate and princess-feather.[2] It was first described, as Polygonum orientale, by Carl Linnaeus in 1753. It was transferred to the genus Persicaria by Édouard Spach in 1841.[3] Its native distribution is unclear.[4] As of May 2019, Plants of the World Online lists only Uzbekistan,[1] whereas other sources give a much wider distribution in temperate and tropical Asia and Australia. It is widely cultivated and naturalized.[4]
