Buy Persicaria bistorta 'Superba' bistort: Showy spikes of pale pink flowers. This plant loves damp soil!

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: any moist soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: June to October
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Dense spikes of soft pink flowers rise from midsummer to early autumn above semi-evergreen, deeply veined, mid-green leaves. This clump-forming, vigorous perennial has handsome foliage and quickly makes dense groundcover in sun or partial shade. Plant it in bold swathes to add vertical interest in the border right through till mid autumn, and give it plenty of space. Persicaria does not like dry soil, so performs best in a bog garden or beside a pond. Bees and other insects love it too!

  • Garden care: Lift and divide congested colonies in spring or autumn.

I have clay soil, not sure if it's particularly 'moist' or not tbh - but I certainly don't have a pond to plant Persicaria Bistoria next to. Is thorough, regular watering likely to produce the kind of conditions it will survive in?


Yes, these plants will flourish in any moist soil, so if you make sure the plant is kept well watered on a regular basis, then it should be fine.
