(Chameleon Plant) Houttuynia Chameleon, appropriately named, changes its color depending on the amount of sunlight available. The leaves are a variegated green and cream in shady areas and with more sun they take on shades of yellow, pink, and scarlet red with nickel-sized white flowers appearing intermittently in early summer. Easy to grow, Chameleon is a vigorous groundcover that will even grow in shallow water.
