This variegated goutweed is one of the most popular ground covers for quickly covering large areas. Will rapidly form a continuous mound of attractive foliage typically growing to 8" tall with an indefinite spread. Unfortunately, once it gets going, it acts like the proverbial snowball going downhill and can be difficult to contain. 'Variegatum' is less invasive than the species, however. Variegated, basal foliage is light green with creamy white margins. Tiny white flowers appear above the foliage in May-June, but are not particularly attractive and are often sheared off by gardeners where practicable.
Easily grown in average, dry to medium,well-drained soils in sun or shade. Foliage will often scorch in hot, dry, full sun conditions. Tolerant of a wide range of soils. Flower heads may be removed to prevent self-seeding and to maintain appearance of the ground cover. Any un-variegated shoots which appear should also be removed as they tend to be more vigorous and can quickly take over a planting.
