** Persicaria amplexicaulis Firetail **

SOLD OUT FOR 2019. - Next hopeful harvest = October.
Germination: Unknown. I have never tried to germinate the seeds because I never knew that the plants set seed. However, after having a couple other plants come up in my garden, I decided to check more diligently for seed this year (2007). I did find seed, but the plants set very few. So for germination, my suggestion would be "winter sowing" under which conditions these seeds naturally germinate.
