Peucedanum ‘Daphnis’


This plant is no longer for sale directly from TERRA NOVA® Nurseries. However, it may still be available through one of our Licensees or Retail Sources.


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.
