Aegopodium podagraria 'Variegata'

Aegopodium podagraria 'Variegata'
Common name bishop's weed; goutweed; snow on the mountain
Family apiaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers white
Size 6"
Light sun-part shade
Cultural notes ordinary garden soil

As pretty as this variegated groundcover is, we consider it to be mostly a weed in our garden: it is near-impossible to contain its wandering roots, which specialize in intermingling with the roots of neighboring plants, to escape extermination attempts. One patch survives, by our mailbox - that area is so dry that it stays pretty well contained. If it shows any inclination to spread, out it goes!

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
