(Snow-on-the-Mountain) Aegopodium 'Variegatum' is a vigorous spreader that will create a beautiful display in that difficult shady location. It can also be planted in a large tub or decorative container where it can be contained for an attractive exhibit. As a variegated version of Bishops Weed, 'Variegatum' has light green and white leaves that produce umbrella-shaped clusters of tiny, lacy, creamy white flowers that bloom in early summer.

Carefree Review by Cindy S | Zone: 6b
I happen to love this carefree ground cover, which is on the north side across the back of my house in the St. Louis area (zone 6A). The plant is attractive, hardy and carefree. Perhaps it would be troublesome in south or full sun. (Posted on 6/5/2014)
Spreading Groundcover Review by Chuck | Zone: 5
This is an awesome plant -- IN THE RIGHT LOCATION. If you are looking for a spreading groundcover to plant with large shrubs and trees (please do not plant with small shrubs or perennials) - it's is hard to beat this very hardy plant. BUT BEWARE -- it is very invasive, if you do not want it - do not plant it. Always check with a local nursery, extension center or Landscape Architect about how specific plants will do in your region. (Posted on 8/5/2009)
Invasive Review by K J | Zone: 7
Avoid this plant like the plague if you grow anything else. It will creep underground and smother the life out of it. I can't believe it is actually sold. You can never get rid of it. (Posted on 5/20/2009)
Stunning in Containers Review by Andrea | Zone: 8
Thank you for posting the invasive warning. This plant is a problem in the PNW, extremely invasive planted in ground, but stunning in containers. (Posted on 1/6/2009)
