Persicaria amplexicaulis 'Blackfield' is a clumping perennial with dark green, oval to heart-shaped leaves to 10cm long. Long-stalked, narrow spikes of dark blood-red flowers open from 

almost black buds from mid summer to mid autumn. Best grown in any moist soil in full sun, so works well in a bog garden, or at the water's edge.

Cut back after flowering, or in late winter/early spring.Some persicarias are much too big for most modern small gardens but this one can be accommodated on smaller plots and has some of the best flowers for depth of colour.

Height: 50-80cm in 2-5 years
