This Persicaria has much larger velvety leaves, taller, and showier than 'Lance Corporal'. It's also later blooming. (in November!-so seeding is hardly a problem). Tiny red flowers. Because of it's stature, it's a great back or mid-border plant. This plant is not a sprawler like so many Persicaria.
