Aegopodium podagraria ‘Variegata’

For sale by Lewis Cottage Plants

This grower is sure of this plant identification.

Yes, I know, it’s exactly the same plant as the dreaded ground elder but variegated. Probably the most attractive variegated plant in the garden with lovely flat topped umbellifer flowers in summer. It is invasive, so plant with care (but less so than its common relative!) Great in dry spots where nothing else will thrive.
