A bull-dozer of a fast-growing ground cover plant!
Nothing can stand in his way, nothing can stop him!
Aegopodium podagraria 'Variegatum' forms an excellent carpet at the foot of trees in partial shade, evening in dry, poor soil. Yes, you read it right! IT CAN WITHSTAND THE DRY SHADE OF A TREE.
You need to take care when planting it in a mixed borer as it tends to dominate the other species. Its hardiness also means that it grows well in pots. Its evergreen foliage lasts twelve months out of twelve.
A great idea! We use it as ground cover under shrubs with a variegated foliage such as Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Variegatum', Buddleja davidii 'Harlequin'.
