More Details

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.

Genus Persicaria
Group/Species runcinata
Variety 'Purple Fantasy'
Type Hardy Perennial
Border Position Container, Ground Cover, Middle
Soil Type Fertile, Neutral
Scent Unscented
Site Part Shade
Moisture Moist but Well-drained
Height 60cm (24in)
Spacing 1.2m (4ft)
Sowing, Seeds, Planting Suited to a container in moist compost in a shaded location or grow in the open if you have a large border.
Care Tips Ideal for a shade pot, but will spread if planted in the garden - making it ideal for vigorous ground cover, but it may swamp smaller plants. When it flowers, or if it threatens to get too big, give it a severe chop back, it won't mind at all.
Flowering July - September
Harvesting Flower production: 2-3 months.
