Red Dragon Fleeceflower Perennial - Persicaria microcephala - 2.5" Pot
Gift wrapping Options available
Persicaria microcephala 'Red Dragon' is a vigorous grower that trades one display of color for another as the season rolls along. A clump-forming perennial, 'Red Dragon' does well in combination plantings when mixed with annuals or perennials. Set off with red stems, this vigorous grower boasts spring leaves that are deep-burgundy with a plum or mint-colored chevron and a metallic sheen. Summer foliage becomes greener, accented by a red leaf margin and a red chevron on a red stem. While cooler areas are rewarded with better color in late summer, 'Red Dragon' is a splendid selection for any garden. Small white flowers appear in early summer. Mature height and width can run from 24-36 inches. Its growth rate is vigorous but the plant is not invasive. 'Red Dragon' tolerates most soils, including heavy clay. Hardy in USDA zones 6-9. It is suitable for borders, beds, rockeries or as a container perennial. In cold winter climates this plant is well worth growing as a foliage accent, treating it as an annual or wintering indoors in pots.
