Daily Flower Candy: Persicaria bistorta ‘Superba’ AGM

Reading time 1 minute

With flowers like bottle brushes, Persicaria bistorta ‘Superba’ makes a fine herbaceous perennial, flowering over a long period. Persicaria does not like dry soil, so is best planted in a bog garden or beside a pond. Bees and other insects love visiting the flowers, so it’s great for wildlife gardens.
