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
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.
