Plant Details

A very good ground cover plant with 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.

A herb with an aromatic smell which has apparently long been used in Asia to treat pneumonia, hypertension, constipation, and hyperglycemia via detoxification, reduction of heat and diuretic action. 

Height: 20cm

Common name(s): heart-leaved houttuynia, Fish mint, Fish leaf, Heart leaf, Fish wort, Chinese lizard tail

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.
