I'm increasingly obsessed by the super-elegant, patterned-leaved new generation of persicarias.

Imagine a few stems of this on its own in a vase – the leaves, not the flowers. It's also brilliant for pots in dappled shade with white aquilegias and tulips growing through it.

Service excellent. Notification and delivery very prompt. Plant arrived very dry and definitely looking 'end of stock', but have potted it up in a tall pot so that the long stems can dangle, and when fully established, will cut it hard back to the new shoots as base.
