Fun new selection of Persicaria with softly golden foliage which is a great backdrop for the 18"-24" flower stems bearing spikes of flowers the same color as the Pope's new ruby slippers. Easy and very hardy and thriving in a good moisture retentive soil.

Info

Though many plants with yellow leaves prefer a shaded location, the golden foliage of this persicaria stands up to full sun as long as it is well watered in summer. Easy in part shade as well. Forming clumps of arrow shaped leaves to 2-3 ft tall and wide, plants create a bright spot in the garden even before their bright red flowers appear in summer often lasting into fall to the delight of hummingbirds and butterflies. Spreads by underground rhizomes as well as self-seeding so needs room to spread or careful monitoring. Frost hardy in USDA zone 4.

Info

Narrow spikes of crimson tassels rise above clumps of golden green lance shaped foliage almost all season. Foliage height is 18-24" and plants prefer partial shade and moist, well-drained soil, although it appears to be adaptable to both wet or dry conditions. NOT invasive.
