Persicaria amplexicaulis 'Fat Domino' - 2020


By Andrewr

Persicaria amplexicaulis 'Fat Domino' - 2020 (Persicaria amplexicaulis)

Some persicarias are pretty weedy or ground-covering thugs (or both!), but this is a clump-former to about three feet with a similar spread, and large flowers (for a persicaria). Great for a tropical or jungle effect

I like the look of this one, my Orangefield has collapsed in the heat and did last year too I've had to cut it back

I think this is the one we needs more moisture unfortunately..

Yes, it does have a lot of foliage to support. Do you incorporate water retaining gel in the soil at planting time for 'thirsty' plants?

No Andrew do you find it works for you?

I've used it as an experiment for one plant growing very close to my neighbour's giant conifer, and it does seem to be helping
