Persicaria bistorta superbum


Another pretty plant that is deceptively thuggish. The dock-like leaves give it away, but it does have the most charming pink pokers of flowers from May till September and is fantastic ground cover for an awkward spot. Unfussy about soil or position, but in sun on a moist soil can spread alarmingly. Well worth the effort of keeping under control.

Abundant slender shell pink pokers over handsome and luxuriant dock-like foliage, flowering May-July. Grows in any moist soil in sun or part shade. One of the freshest and loveliest of plants and most useful in the herbaceous border or as ground cover.
