Per­si­caria mi­cro­cephala

NZ Gardener - - In Season -

‘Red Dragon’ has more cos­tume changes than Lady Gaga in con­cert. A knotweed but not a dan­ger­ous one, the leaves look their best when they are freshly emerg­ing (they get a bit tall and floppy later on), so cut the plant back twice a year just as the rather weedy cream flower spikes emerge.

Feed and water, and this plant will oblige with a set of new clothes ev­ery time. (Marsh­wood Gar­dens)
