Description

Embrace your inner flamboyance with a fabulous flock of Persicaria 'Flamingo Feathers'! This new cultivar has the exotic colour spot-on, producing multiple feathery flower spikes which last from mid-summer through to early autumn every year.  Despite its tropical looks, this perennial is hardy, resilient and will spread over time to fill a good space with long-lasting colour and lush foliage. Not only will Persicaria 'Flamingo Feathers' form a perfect patch of pink in your summer garden for you to enjoy, but bees and other pollinators will love its nectar-rich flowers too.  

Also known as bistort or bistorta, Persicaria have long been a popular choice for herbaceous borders. They’re gutsy and reliable, low maintenance yet striking. Its height makes this quite a high-impact plant, plus the upright flower spikes provide an interesting texture. Try planting Persicaria 'Flamingo Feathers' in a few groups with plant neighbours such as Crocosmia, Eryngium, Salvia, Echinacea, Sedum, Helenium and ornamental grasses like Panicum or Miscanthus

Useful information

    • Soak your Persicaria 'Flamingo Feathers' roots in water for 3-6 hours prior to planting.

    • Plant your "Pink bistort" bare roots into temporary pots with a multipurpose compost in spring and grow-on in a sheltered spot outdoors.

    • Choose a pot which comfortably fits the bare roots. Some have a noticeable crown which should be just below the soil surface with any top growth exposed.

    • Plant out into borders or permanent containers in late spring or early summer once in full growth. Choose a position in sun or shade depending on the variety.
