Polygonum 'Crimson Beauty' is an introduction from the old Gulf Stream Nursery in Accomack Co., Virginia, that was selected both for flower color and clumping habit. This selection does not run and take over the countryside like the horrible weedy species plant that threatens the Northeast. The upright clumps, to 7' on bamboo-like stalks, burst forth with dazzling tassels from late August to late November, first white, then fiery red, then back to white. This is a fabulous perennial for fall color and is also great for drying, which prevents garden seedlings--gotta have it!
