Plant Details

A striking plant with most unusual markings on the leaves. Each leaf is splashed variously with pink, cream, black and red, just like a painter's palette. A real talking point.

Beautiful when massed as a groundcover, used as a specimen plant, or included in mixed containers. Airy deep-pink spikes of flowers appear in autumn and are delightfully graceful. Not a difficult plant to grow, provided the soil is not too dry.

Well worth growing for the talking point alone. 

May self-seed if happy, but not to the point of being a problem. Prefers damp soil but tolerates well drained if it doesn't dry out completely.

Fully hardy.

Height: 90cm

Common name(s): Painter's palette

Synonym(s): Persicaria filiformis 'Painter's Palette' ; Tovara virginiana 'Painter's Pallette'

All our plants are supplied in at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots 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.
