Fallopia japonica var. compacta full sun  partial shade

Don’t let this species’ humdrum name or slow start put you off. Although it emerges from the ground late in the spring, Fallopia japonica var. compacta reaches full height rather quickly.

Panicles of miniature white and pinkish red flowers, whose bicolored quality makes them sparkle, dress up the bushy visage. Rounded, ripple-edged and leathery, the attractive dark green leaves are held by crimson petioles, and furnish a brilliant yellow fanfare once the weather begins to cool.

Blooms late August–early October.

Size: 4' 0" high x 4' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Autumnal Fanfare: Lambent Leaves, Glistening Berries, Fleeting Flowers....

Here at Digging Dog, we’ve had some welcome rain to actually soak the soil. With the onset of shorter days and chilly nights, a quieter contemplative mood envelopes parts of the garden. As many herbaceous plants are fading into dormancy, evergreen shrubs, bold-toned leaves, textural seed-heads plus plump glistening berries take center stage. The impressive group of plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye when I strolled through the nursery and garden yesterday. I hope you enjoy these compelling autumnal offerings. In many locales throughout the country, there’s still time to tuck some botanical gems into an empty garden nook.
