Product Description

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.

    Can't wait to see it bloom

    This pretty foliage plant arrived slightly bent outta shape. Two of it's fragile little limbs were broken. Hoping for a quick recovery and for it to put on some growth. Then I can't wait for it to bloom.
