Persicaria 'Red Dragon'

4L Plant


Persicaria 'Red Dragon' is an unusual herbaceous plant, grown for its foliage rather than flowers. Each leaf is sharply pointed, with maroon and green patterning and a pale white margin. It quickly develops into a handsome, upright clump. It also looks good in jungle planting schemes, where it makes the perfect partner to cannas and bamboos. Alternatively, grow it in a pot on the patio and display it in its own right.


What am I Buying?

4L (4 Litres) refers to the volume of the pot. The size of the plant growth can vary greatly. Most will be between 40-90cm tall unless they are naturally low growing plants or if you are buying herbaceous plants in winter.

Please note herbaceous plants naturally die-back during the colder months. We always ensure plants have at least some growth during this time, however when buying during October through to March, the growth may be minimal and there may be blemishes from winter cold.
