Description

Persicarias come into their own as many summer perennials fade. I have come to truly love them mixed with hydrangeas in a dappled shady border and picked as the upper storey for a vase.

Care Tips

Spreads rapidly to become a 1m-wide clump within two seasons. We recommend lifting and dividing after every three years.
