Aegopodium podagraria Bishop's Weed

Aegopodium podagraria 'Variegatum'

Bishop's Weed

♦ Zones:  4 - 9     Height:  6 - 12"     Exposure:  Full Sun to Part Shade ♦

This variegated goutweed is one of the most popular ground covers for quickly covering large areas. Tiny white flowers appear in flat-topped, dill-like inflorescences (umbels) which are typical of the parsley/carrot family. Flowers appear above the foliage in May-June, but are not particularly attractive and are often sheared off by gardeners where practicable. Common name is in reference to a former use of the plant in the treatment of gout. Also commonly called Bishop's weed in reference to the purported resemblance of the leaflet shape to that of a bishop's miter.
