Persicaria or Himalayan Fleeceflower
Are creeping ground cover perennials that cover the ground with lance shaped dense carpets of pretty green foliage. In late summer a mass of flower candles erupts over the entire surface and last all through until Jack Frost burns them off for the season.
Where to Site Your Persicaria
They are simple to grow and a ground cover perennial must have.
How to Grow and Look after Your Persicaria
Plant in any moist well drained soil in full sun or partial shade. They flower best in a sunny position. Some of the low growing varieties will tolerate dry situations, while most taller types prefer moist conditions. They can be divided in early autumn or late winter.
