Plant Details

Beautiful ground cover plant. Red and yellow variegated heart-shaped green leaves. Tolerates both very wet and very dry soils.

The leaves develop the brightest colours in Full Sun, but has pretty gold-edged leaves when grown in shade.

Pretty white flowers from June to September.

Happy in very wet and boggy soil all the way up to very dry soil. Probably more prolific in moist soil. Works well in a container too. Suitable for planting in pond/stream margins.

Height: 20cm

Common name(s): heart-leaved houttuynia

All our plants are supplied in at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
