Plant Details

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 9x10cm 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. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
