Persicaria bistorta (Marginal Aquatic)

Common Bistort

Hardy Perennial

Throughout summer, Persicaria bistorta produces upright stems topped with prominent mauve-pink flower spikes. The green leaves are conspicuously veined, creating large spreading clumps of foliage. Common Bistort is an astonishingly resilient hardy perennial that will look after itself once established. Give it plenty of space to wander and let it form natural colonies for the most impressive display. Height: 75cm (30"). Spread: 90cm (36"). Planting depth: Zones 1 & 2 to 15cm (6") below water level.

Ideal For:
cottage gardens, water garden
Flowering Period:
June, July, August, September
sun or semi shade
    • 1 x 3 litre potted persicaria plant

    • Despatch: By end of June 2017
    • £24.99
Persicaria bistorta prefers a fertile moist soil, but once established, will happily tolerate most conditions from boggy soils and pond margins to dry conditions. Plant Bistort in sun or semi shade. When grown in ponds, plant Persicaria to a maximum depth of up to 15cm (6") below water level.
Once established, Persicaria is undemanding and requires little attention. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps in autumn or spring to maintain vigour and keep plants within their allotted space.
