Plant Overview

An excellent ground cover, which will smother weeds quite happily. Attractive, deeply veined leaves with paler undersides and clusters of small pink bell flowers from July to September.

Good for cutting.

Tall branching stems are a mass of pink heather-like flowers all late summer and autumn. The leaves are greyish and beautiful in themselves, being heavily veined. 

A vigorous grower that is happy in a wide range of soils and situations, including wet soil. Can cope with dry shade once established.

From the Himalayas in the nineteenth century but naturalised in the UK.

Height and spread: 1m x 2m

Common name(s): Lesser knotweed, Bell-flowered knotweed

Syn. Polygonum campanulata. 

All our plants are supplied in 9cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant.
The majority of our plants are grown outdoors. This means that they follow their natural growth patterns and are ready to plant at any time of the year. If you order the plants in winter, they are likely to be dormant and died back to ground level, ready to shoot again in spring - just like the herbaceous perennials in your own garden. Very occasionally, in winter, we may indicate on the packing slip that a plant needs to be hardened off before planting out. This will be because it has just come out of a polytunnel. If you have any questions about our plants or growing methods, please feel free to drop us an email.
We grow most of what we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside. Our prices include VAT at 20%.
