Persicaria microcephala 'Red Dragon'
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 is tolerant of a range of soils and will happily grow in sun or partial shade. To make the most of its foliage, grow alongside contrasting foliage plants such as silver-leaved artemisia plants or grasses.
