Fallopia japonica var. 'Compacta'   Polygonum 'Reynoutria', Dwarf Japanese Knotweed    Z: 4-8    

Fallopia japonica var. 'Compacta'This plant has had more names than one can count - Polygonum, Reynoutria to name two.  The species is a noxious weed.  The form 'Compacta', according to the Missouri Botanical Garden Kemper Center website, which says "Generally best as a ground cover in areas where its somewhat invasive spread will not be a problem.   Good for massing on banks and slopes." Also, great in pots where it can't spread at all!  It's cold hardy enough to live year round in pots in most parts of the country.  Loose clusters of pale pink flowers in summer mature to red and are followed by red seeds. Heart-shaped (to 2" long), red-veined, green leaves turn red in fall.  Good Fall color.

Soil: Most any.     H: 12-24"  W: 12-24"       B/M: Red/ June/July

Cannot ship to: AL, CA, CT, KY,  MA, NH, OR, VT, and WA!

Farfugium japonicum 'Gigantea'     Giant Leopard Plant       Z:  7-10B      

Farfugium japonicum 'Gigantea'     Giant Leopard Plant Huge 15-18" wide, thick glossy leaves is what separates this from the species - they are gigantic! In late October it produces 4' tall stalk of bright yellow, daisy-like flowers. Prefers at least a couple of hours of filtered sun unless you're in a very dry, hot climate. The blooms are wonderful but it's the giant, dark green substantial leaves that steal the show. If flowers are cut back as soon as they start to decline, it will generally bloom again.  Needs well drained soil but does not like to dry out or wilt.  Makes it VERY aggravated!

Soil: Moist but well-drained          H: 48" W: 48"       B/M:  Yellow/9-11
