Snow
on the
Mountain

Aegopodium


Description:

This vigorous ground cover does well on banks or hard to maintain places.  It is an aggressive grower best used by itself to underplant larger woody trees and shrubs.  At the end of a hot, dry summer, just run the lawn mower over it and water deeply a few times to encourage fresh, new growth. 
 
Common Name: Snow-on-the-Mountain, Bishop's Weed, Gout Weed, Ground Elder
Botanical Name: Aegopodium
Type: Perennial, Ground Cover
Soil Preference: This plant prefers well-drained soils but will also tolerate drought and moist soils.  Prefers a pH of neutral to slightly alkaline.
Light Requirements:

Sun, Part Shade, Full Shade

Attributes: Nice in a woodland garden or as a ground cover.  Also looks nice planted in containers.
Pests: Mites
Diseases: Fungal leaf spot if kept wet. Leaf blight in humid weather
Good Companion Plants: Bugleweed, Catmint, Hosta, Lamb's Ear
Care: Fertilize with Plant-tone, Flower-tone or a water-soluble fertilizer.   Division can be done in early spring or seeds can be harvested in late summer.  Remove spent blossoms to prevent self-sowing.  Also remove flower stems for a neat appearance.  If plants look ragged by late summer, simply mow them over with a lawnmower and fresh, new growth will quickly fill in

Planting Instructions:  Perennials

Aegopodium pod. 'Variegatum'
Snow on the Mountain, Bishop's Weed,
Gout Weed, Ground Elder
zones 3-8
 
Description:  An attractive groundcover for the shade, 'Variegatum' is a light green and white variegated version of Bishop's Weed. Though it produces 14 inch tall umbels of tiny, creamy-white flowers in early summer, it is usually grown for its pretty foliage.  If you are looking to rapidly fill in a space beneath a tree, on a slope, or any place that nothing else will grow, this is the perfect plant for you. It can be invasive, but if it's planted in the right spot, it is beautiful. Try growing it near a shady path in a large tub where its growth can be contained.
Bloom Color: White
Bloom Time: Summer
Foliage Color: Green & white variegated
Height: 6-10"
Spread: 18-24"
