Giant Fleece Flower

Persicaria polymorpha . I was watching a YouTube video of a Northern gardener who had this plant in her garden. I immediately thought I have to have that :)

I was wondering if anyone grows this in zone 6b or 7 and how it performs there. I have a northwestern exposure where I am planning to plant it.

Any advice or recommendation appreciated.

It will do just fine in the conditions you describe. Be sure to give it lots of room!

(Do a search in GW as many members have wonderful specimens of this plant)

It's a great plant, but even better I think is Persicaria 'Crimson Beauty'.

I LOVE this plant. But as rouge21 said 'give it lots of room.' My plant is 6 1/2 ft tall x 6 ft wide and has to be staked to keep it upright and prevent spawl. It flowers for me from June-August and the white blooms are spectacular. It is the anchor plant for a large garden bed meant to be viewed primarily from our deck so large size and highly visible flowers were a requirement.
