Caught the Old Rose bug in the 90's and they have taken centre stage in my gardens ever since. I overfill my borders to the point of ridiculousness!

Persicaria bistorta 'Superba' syn. Polygonum bistorta 'Superbum'

Are these invasive?

They can be a little aggressive in damp or boggy soil but they do look fantastic in a large drift when allowed to spread. I grow mine in a well drained mixed border with roses, hardy geraniums etc and they make a well behaved sturdy clump.
