Persicaria - For shade
See our main section 'Persicaria' for general details. This selection prefer a shadier spot, with some being in our Woodland Garden and others under trees in our main herbaceous beds. Typically the flowers are less showy than the typical persicarias, although those of P. campanulata are exceptionally charming. However it the range foliage colour and patterns which make this shady range stand out.
The genus Persicaria is under going revision, with some plants moved to the genera Bistorta and Koenigia. Some of these Persicaria have also previously been known as Polygonum or Tovara.
