Persicaria amplexicaulis ‘Rosea’ looks wonderful with its spikes of the light pink flower in late spring, summer, and fall. It is a wonderful plant for borders or a wildlife garden. I saw this at Potters Field Park in London, UK. It usually grows to 4ft and does well in both poorly-drained or well-drained soil rather easy to grow. It attracts birds and butterflies to your garden. However, it is rabbit and dear resistant and easy to grow, no disease or pests have ever been reported. You can prune back after it flowers.

About Dino

Dino
I am a flower enthusiast and a gardener at heart. Ever since childhood I loved reading about plants and started gardening at an early age. First by helping my father in the garden and later managing a large garden myself in my teen years. I planted and cared for a large number of plants, flowers, and trees both outdoors and in a greenhouse. To this day I enjoy visiting gardens and parks and learning about new and old specimens and varieties of plants.
