Dense spikes of soft pink flowers are produced in mid summer and on into early autumn above semi-evergreen, deeply veined, mid-green leaves. This perennial forms clumps of attractive foliage and makes dense groundcover in both sun and semi shade. It should be planted in bold drifts where it adds interest in the border right through into the autumn. Like other Persicaria it does not like dry soil, so it grows best in a bog garden or beside a pond. As well as gardeners, bees and other insects love it too!
