rampant red dragon


rampant red dragon (Persicaria microcephala)

This is the border I renovated in June. Persicaria red dragon is doing really well. The shrub right at the back is a V tinus that I cut down from 10' to 1'.

they were only 2 small plants back in june. they cover an area about 6x4 ft. hoping they stay airy so other things can grow through it.

The BBC plant finder calls it "A handsome upright plant". LOL

if upright is like a 'drunk having trouble staying up' then yes it is. but my P.superba is upright even in deep shade.

Gorgeous colour, love these, started off with 'firetail' given to me by my dad years ago, bought a couple last year at Malvern 'Pink Elephant' which is doing really well and 'Neofiliformis' also doing well, but certainly not as good as yours, wow thats some spread in such a short time, lovely :-)
