Persicaria flowers


Persicaria flowers (Persicaria 'Red Dragon')

Persicaria 'Red Dragon' is grown for its beautiful leaves, but the flowers are pretty, even though they're small.

Yes, they do, which is why I don't snip them off.

Yes, I agree...I saw this plant on GOY and it went on my wish-list two or even three years ago. :-)

I thought I might cut them off last year, but I'm quite glad I didn't. I do like them. :-)

Do you know, in all the time I had my Persicaria, I never saw it flower, I didn't even realise that it did! :~(((

Oooohhhhh- what a shame! I 'think' that the ones in part shade don't have flowers on them. That could be the reason.

Ah, that might explain it, as mine was!

Oooh dear...wrong again. I looked this afternoon, and they do have flowers, but the leaf colour has changed to greenish-brown instead of that lovely burgundy colour.
