Persicaria capitata - Groundcovers

Please be aware Aramax are experiencing significant delays in freight in and around Auckland. We will not send any fragile plants in and around Auckland (unless you tell us too, at your own risk! ), until it is safe to do so. You can still order so you can garauntee plant supply, but please understand there are delays in getting plants to you safely. Freight out of Auckland, Waiheke Island and the South Island are still experiencing significant delays. We are working hard with a limited workforce under strict conditions which is also causing a delay in getting orders to you. We thank you for your patience and investing in upcycled and pre-loved plants, healthier for the environment and healthier for you! :-)

Persicaria capitata
A PLANT FOR BEE-LOVERS :-)
And I just love this little groundcover.
It will grow where much little else will grow. Try it in a hanging basket, it looks amazing :-)

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.
