Persicaria polymorpha

Giant Fleeceflower

Plant Type:


Persicaria polymorpha - Giant Fleeceflower begins producing huge white late spring plumes reminiscent of rhubarb flowers or a giant coarse Astilbe. With an extended bloom period the flowers will continue for many weeks. They are magnificent. Dark green simple matte-finished flame-shaped blades set in opposite fashion from each other on the thick, jointed stalks. The foliage makes a muted if not handsome foil for the flowers but also for perennials planted at its feet. A bold plant, Giant Fleeceflower will make a grand statement in the rear of the larger border, as a filler plant in the sunny hedgerow or even as a specimen if that is your bent. In any case, the bees like it and so do we. Persicaria polymorpha is clumping and not at all weedy. Full sun in average to fertile draining soil. Cutting grown.
