Perennial. Direct sow in spring. Slow germinator.
(Polygonum orientale) Exotic, long, flowing flower heads are a cerise-pink in color. Plants are over 6 feet tall and produce many hanging, rope-like flowers. We are happy to offer this rare and colorful heirloom from the gardens of yesteryear. Freeze seeds for a week before planting, and plant very early in the spring or late winter. A nice cut or dried flower.
