Persicaria amplexicaulis Blackfield is long flowering, dark and eye-catching. Long, slender, wiry spikes hold a plethora of small, dusky, blood-red blooms creating poker-like flowerheads from June to October. The flowers held above carpets of low, leafy, heart-shaped foliage which make excellent weed-suppressing groundcover. In autumn, the green foliage gains golden yellow tints. Named Blackfield, not because of the blooms which are dark red, but after the black tips on the buds. Commonly known as Mountain Fleece, Persicaria is native to the Himalayas. Much loved by our pollinating friends, the blooms are excellent when cut for your home lasting well in a vase. Persicaria Backfield is deer and rabbit resistant, preferring to be grown in moist soil in sun or part shade, reaching an approximate height of 80cm (32') and spread of approximately 60-80cm (24-32'). Being a fully hardy perennial, Blackfied will flourish outside all year round with no extra winter protection required; dying back over winter to sprout again in spring.
