Persicaria microcephala 'Red Dragon'
Common Name: Snakeweed Family: Polygonaceae (The Buckwheat Family)

Persicaria microcephala 'Red Dragon'
Zoom In Photo:

Dramatic purple and silver lance-shaped leaves marked with a mint chevron on somewhat arching purple stems. Tiny white baby's breath-like flowers appear from mid-summer and last into fall. Not invasive. I wouldn't be without this plant in my own garden. It's a real knock-out for the sun border.
