Persicaria Virginiana 'Painter's Palette'
This low branching plant is grown for its colourful foliage, leaves being variegated with cream and green, with a strong V-shaped marking which is brick-red when fresh but darkens to blackish-brown. Airy deep-pink spikes of delightfully graceful flowers appear in the autumn. Only a proportion of seedlings will come true to the parent so select the brightest.
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
