I have Persicaria 'Red Dragon" and am thinking about getting some others like 'Golden Arrows' and 'Painter's Palate'. Which varieties have you grown and recommend?

The 'Red Dragon' is sterile, Thumbs up but other forms of Persicaria are very invasive. Golden Arrow and Firetail seem to be alright though, not aggressive. Green Grin!

Good to know. I think Golden Arrow is the one I will get. I heard 'Painter's Palette' seeds around. Do you have Firetail?

No, I did see it somewhere though. I think it's bushy. Blinking

Thanks! I really want that one. I think I'll get it next year. I have to make a new flower bed for it and don't want to increase the pot ghetto right now!

I could get one going for you but it would not be ready until fall.

Awesome. That would be great. I could trade something for it. I have some things in my plant list. If one can be propagated that you want, we could trade. You probably already have 'Red Dragon'.

Thanks!

I've never grown horsetails like that. The ones we have are just single stalks and not so fine.

These can grow 4 feet tall! Easy to pull and weeding is fast. Well at least its not morning glory.

Springcolor do you have a pic of your painter' pallet. The one I have seeds a lot but if you do not want it to seed you just have to cut the flower stalk which is not all that pretty.

This is mine...

That is strange. It gets a long stem with really is not flowers but little red balls on the stem. Sort of like a Coral Bell and I get tons of babies. Some are just green with a purple cheveron and some with the red/white/yellow coloring.
