Even withstands foot traffic!
A delightfully variegated selection of Bishop's Weed, this quick spreader charms with pale green foliage irregularly edged in white. Forming a mounded, dense, attractive plant in any exposure from full sun to nearly full shade, it tackles the toughest garden challenges and comes out beautifully!
One of the few plants that not only survives but flourishes in the poor, dry shade beneath spreading trees, Variegated Bishop's Weed is a fine choice for areas where nothing else has been successful. It does not need (and should not get, lest it become invasive) rich soil or other pampering -- this is a groundcover that literally breaks new ground!
Variegated Bishop's Weed reaches just 6 inches high but spreads up to 3 feet wide within just 2 years in the garden. It sets masses of small white blooms in late spring and early summer, but its primary ornamental effect is the splendidly edged foliage. This plant even stands up to foot traffic! Space 12 to 18 inches apart. Zones 3-9.
