Persicaria amplexicaulis 'Pink Elephant'

Persicaria 'Pink Elephant' Mountain Fleeceflower

Common Name: Mountain Fleeceflower, Persicaria

This easy-to-grow, long blooming perennial produces loads of narrow, pink, bottlebrush-like spiked flowers atop tall, dark stems for nearly 5 months beginning in early summer. 

The large, ovate, deep green leaves are clasped directly to the stems and form an upright, bushy clump in the landscape.  It spreads slowly but is not invasive.  Makes an interesting ground cover when planted in drifts.
