Aegopodium p. Variegata 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.

Special Features:  Cold Hardy, Deer Resistant, Drought Tolerant, Easy Care, Fast Growing, Foliage Interest, Heat Tolerant, Moisture Tolerant, Pest Resistant, Variegated

Ajuga Chocolate Chip

Ajuga Chocolate Chip


Fast growing deer-proof Ajuga Chocolate Chip is a low growing evergreen ground cover that thrives in both sun & shade. 

Chocolate Chip bugleweed can be used as a small scale lawn substitute or as an under planting to shrubs & perennials where Ajuga's shallow roots help keep nearby shrubs & perennials roots cool in the heat of summer. This stepable type plant (one that take high traffic) for kid and dog traffic.

Ajugas are not only quick to establish, their fine textured, close knit habit keeps those nasty weeds down and making maintenance a breeze!

The 3" tall chocolate colored carpet is topped with dozens of miniature spikes of blue flowers in late spring and early summer.

Use as an under planting to Hydrangea,  combine with colorful Heuchera, spring flowering Hellebore, or Hostas.
