Polygonum cuspidatum 'Freckles' (Freckles Mexican Bamboo) slide #62131

Polygonum cuspidatum 'Freckles' (Freckles Mexican Bamboo)

Polygonum cuspidatum 'Freckles' (Freckles Mexican Bamboo)
Sun to Part SunZone: 5-9 72" tall Origin: Japan

Open House/Web-Only! We love Polygonum 'Spectabile' but always wanted red flowers with the speckled foliage. Finally, the near-sterile Polygonum 'Spectabile' gave us a few seedlings, and one met our expectations. Polygonum 'Freckles' is a 2004 PDN introduction, which we have trialed since 1993. Polygonum 'Freckles' makes a clump of 6' tall arching bamboo-looking stems. The stems are clothed with heavily white-speckled leaves (much brighter than Polygonum 'Spectabile'). When grown in full sun, the leaves take on a reddish cast. In September, the clumps are topped with terminal and axillary flower stalks of short red spikes...very attractive, and no seedlings or running in 10+ years. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml)
