Persicaria Red Dragon

New

Persicaria Red Dragon

Fantastic as a unique, color-changing ground cover or border planting, Persicaria Red Dragon roars to life with semi-evergreen, burgundy leaves boasting an eye-catching chevron stripe of blue-gray down the center. The foliage changes to silver-purple, then green with age. This vigorous perennial produces tiny white bloom clusters that adorn the leaf tips from midsummer to early fall. Though it spreads a bit slower than other species, Red Dragon is well worth the wait.
  • Hardiness Zones 5-9
  • Mature Height 30 - 36 inches
  • Bloom Time Midsummer to early fall (July-Sept)
  • Light Requirements Full Sun, Half Sun / Half Shade
