Need a little plant to cover a big area? Rely on bishops's weed! This vigorous groundcover is great for filling shady spots with its elegantly variegated green-and-white leaves. It bears clusters of white flowers in summer that appear almost to float over the foliage.
Bishop's weed is also known as goutweed and snow-on-the-mountain. A fast-growing plant, it's also easy to care for and tolerates poor soil and shady conditions where little else will grow. Use it with caution in beds and borders, though because it can become invasive and even invade lawns.
