Persicaria amplexicaulis ‘Summer Dance’
at Digging Dog

Persicaria

Knotweed

Poor Persicaria! Certain weedy, invasive members of the genus have given the rest a bad name, and discouraged gardeners from getting to know these versatile performers. Our garden-worthy selections are happiest in semishade with ample moisture.

Persicaria amplexicaulis ‘Summer Dance’ partial shade

With foliage that’s close to lime-green, and spiky floral tails that approach the scarlet spectrum of rosy pink, this slow spreading perennial is sure to please.

We brought ‘Summer Dance’ home from Piet Oudolf’s Dutch nursery and have come to appreciate its brighter, less rambunctious nature. Swaying to a late summer breeze, our stand lives up to its name while cheerfully commingling amid Anemone ‘Andrea Atkinson’ in the border.

Blooms August–November.

Size: 3' high & spreading. Zone 5/6.
