lost a plant

I was searching through gardenweb and came across a plant that I thought I had bookmarked..but didn't. I know there are a zillion of plants...I would love to find it again. It is zone 6-9, had colors of pink to green w/yellow center. The plant has several arms that fan out, and each arm has spear shaped leaves that radiate off of each branch/arm. The plant appeared to have a span of 12+ inches and could attain a height of 5+ feet. If anyone could help direct me to finding this elusive plant, I would be very appreciative. Oh, there was a post that this plant was hit by a cold snap (maybe on the northwest coast) of 14 degrees, and it made it fine. Thanks!

RE: lost a plant

Are you describing the leaves or flowers? If leaves, it sounds as if it might be a persicaria or tovara.
