Polygonum capitatum 'Pink Buttons' (Pink Buttons Smartweed)

Sun to Part SunZone: 7b-10 3" tall Origin: China

NEW! (aka: Persicaria capitata) We obtained our plant in 1995 from a keen local gardener, the late Rachel Dunham, and it has behaved superbly ever since. P. 'Pink Buttons' makes a deciduous groundcover with above-ground stems adorned with small green leaves, each highlighted with a reddish-brown chevron. In late September and through October, the clumps are topped with hundreds of tiny pink buttons...very cute. Not only is it a great ornamental, but it is used medicinally to cure dysentery, diarrhea, kidney stones, bladder infections, mumps, eczema, and yes, to inhibit E. coli in rat urine...how have you lived without one? We do not recommend this for the warmer parts of coastal California, where it remains evergreen and seems to seed a bit too much. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml)
