Persicaria capitata - Groundcovers

We use Aramax couriers for all our deliveries and they are currently taking too long to deliver our plants. We wll not be dispatching any more orders until the new year when they are back to normal.

Please read our condtions of sale here. We go to great lengths to pack our plants well for transport but sometimes couriers can still damage them or leave them without light and water for far too long. In this case we are sorry but we cannot be responsible for thier mistakes. If you have lost or damaged plants please lodge a claim with them here.  You can arrange for a pick upin Kumeu from here. And if you know of a fantastic courier service that will travel to rural places within NZ we would love to hear from them. Please tell us your amazing story here!

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 :-)

It has alternate ovate leaves are 1–6 cm long, 0.7–3 cm wide with a reddish midrib with fine coloured hairs, giving a distinctive red ‘V’ pattern, The leaves become red when the plant is under stress, but it still looks great!

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.
