Polygonum perspicaria is a very rustic plant that hardly needs care for its maintenance. It is a low-rise species that grows like ground cover. In warm climates, such as the Mediterranean area, it is usually cultivated for this purpose.
This shrub plant has its origin in the Canary Islands, and is one of the lavender varieties with a longer flowering period. In hot climates, we can enjoy its well-known inflorescences almost all year long.
