Description

Variegated Bishop's Weed (Aegopodium podagraria 'Variegatum') is considered a great dry-shade groundcover useful under trees with competitive root systems. Growth in the spring is the most attractive with creamy white and mint-green variegated leaves. If dry in summer, it will go partially dormant and look bedraggled. If this happens, simply 'mow and regrow". With regular water in the fall, beautiful growth will resume. It can be invasive and should only be grown in a confined area or in a container. Occasionally it will start to revert back to green. If this happens, dig out or spray the non-variegated growth or it will out compete the desirable variegated growth.
