The Mitella genus has about twenty species native to North America and North-East Asia. Mitella japonica is endemic in the undergrowth of Japanese mountain woodlands. It is a member of the Saxifragaceae family and looks rather like the tiarella or heuchera genera.
Mitella japonica 'Variegata' is a rhizomatous plant and is an excellent ground cover for shady areas in the garden, for instance, under conifers, or ericaceous plants or to decorate the edge of a shady pathway.
Its beautifully variegated gold and green foliage is attractive all year round, even in the winter.
Grow in partial shade in ordinary soil that is not too dry, acid to neutral.
Very hardy. Grows well in pots.
