Persicaria amplexicaulis 'Firetail'

Mountain Fleece Flower
An underutilized but carefree plant for summer into fall bloom. Rosy red bottle brush flowers on 2-4' stems create a complimentary accent to the many summer blooming daisy shaped flowers. Green arrow shaped foliage rises to about a foot tall. Spreading clumps, but this is not an invasive species. 'Firetail' like to grow in sun or partial shade and prefer well drained soil.
