This useful evergreen, ground-cover plant has glossy, lance-shaped leaves which turn reddish in dry conditions, and take on fine brown tints in autumn. From early summer into autumn, the foliage is studded with upright 10cm (4in) spikes of rose red flowers which turn an attractive pale pink as they fade. Use persicaria for the front of a border or in light, dappled shade beneath shrubs, and particularly for growing over areas of spring bulbs. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it the Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
