PEST STATUS:

In some areas this may be considered a pest plant but it is NOT a legally declared pest plant. We encourage you to plant this in a pot or garden areas that are hard to grow and that will not interfere with other Native vegetation.

When trimming the vegetation you may want to consider composting it in your own property or burn it to stop it from dispersing into other areas.

HEALTH BENEFITS:


Persicaria capitata has been widely used in China in the treatment of various urologic disorders including urinary calculus and urinary tract.
