Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
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.

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.
