AEGOPODIUM podagraria 'Variegatum'
Bishop's Goutweed, Snow-on-the-Mountain, Variegated Bishop's Goutweed
Snow-on-the-Mountain is a rapidly spreading groundcover that is native to Europe and western Asia and has rampantly naturalized in North America. 'Variegatum' has three to nine widely divided, white and light green aromatic leaves that travel by way of fibrous roots and rhizomes. In mid spring to summer it produces umbels of tiny white flowers that turn to seed that will eagerly broadcast itself and freely germinate. (Removing seed heads when possible curtails unwanted volunteers from germinating). This variegated form is frequently used as a dry shade groundcover.
Snow-on-the-mountain will grow in almost any average soil with drainage and prefers full to partial sun. Plant as ground cover in areas where deep edging can be set into ground to prevent invasion.
