Description :

Long summer flowering period to go with warm colours

Persicaria amplexicaulis 'J.S Caliente' is a recent Belgian selection (2008) from breeder Jan Spruyt (J.S.), which differs from its close relatives in its:

  • intense orangey-red colouring Very hot! Caliente!
  • greater resistance to summer drought compared with other Persicaria amplexicaulis;
  • dense, rounded clump of foliage which keeps in shape. Height: 50 cm, and
  • a long summer flowering of fine coloured floral spikes. Height: 70 cm.

In the garden, we like to combine Persicaria amplexicaulis 'JS Caliente' with warm colours:

Grow in the sun (not scorching) or slight shade in ordinary soil that should not be too dry – if possible! Hardiness: -20 °C

Maintenance: At the beginning of spring and, in any case, before the new growth starts, mulch generously with mature compost and “spring-clean” the plant by trimming any old, dried leaves.

Persicaria amplexicaulis is a species native to the Himalayas – from Pakistan, Sikkim (India) to western China – where it grows at altitudes between 2000 m and 4800 m in thickets, meadows and along the banks of streams. Persicaria amplexicaulis was introduced into the United Kingdom by seeds sent to botanist Dr James Aitchison (1836 - 1898) at the Royal Botanic Garden at Kew in 1880.
