Persicaria microcephala Red Dragon - Fleece Flower, Knotweed

Persicaria microcephala Red Dragon is a perennial with showy new leaves that come on red and have a pale chevron marking. Some of the Knotweeds give the genus a bad rap. Persicaria microcephala Red Dragon grows in a slowly expanding clump up to 3-4 feet tall. The white flowers of Persicaria microcephala Red Dragon start in the late Spring and linger into Fall. I cut Persicaria microcephala Red Dragon to the ground in the Winter. Persicaria microcephala Red Dragon grows in Sun or Shade, is not particular about soil but needs to be kept on the dry side.
