Aegopodium p. 'Variegatum' Description
Aegopodium 'Variegatum' or Bishop's Weed is regarded as one of the fastest growing ground covers on the market today providing a quick fill in either sun or shade spot in the garden.
With the extreme vigor of Aegopodium you will want to select an isolated site where the rootstock can be kept in check.
Pale green, carrot-scented leaves are attractively edged with ivory reaching 9" tall. By summer, white flowers resemble Queen Anne's Lace bringing the height up to 14" tall.
Great companion for Hardy Ferns, Hydrangeas, Heuchera, & Hostas, Bishop's Weed is very adaptable and grows in anything from sandy loam to heavy clay; from full sun to dense shade, and tolerates compact soil and infertility.
