Clump forming with an upright bushy habit. Lovely mossy green leaves with a faint chevron and narrow tapers of tiny white flowers in mid-late autumn. Hardy, deciduous and best in shade. 90cm.
A classy plant for that border full of ferns and hostas to give you a bit of height and later flower! Persicaria virginiana 'Alba' will tolerate quite dry soils once established but like most plants it prefers better conditions - but never waterlogged.
