Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
This versatile little perennial is both moisture and drought tolerant, and thrives in almost any position from sun to dappled shade. The heart-shaped foliage of Houttuynia cordata 'Chameleon' is a splendid sight in shades of green, gold and red, with a pungent orange fragrance. Throughout mid-summer the spreading stems are covered in masses of white flowers. With its spreading habit, Houttuynia cordata 'Chameleon' is perfect for forming attractive ground cover as it wanders among rockeries, throughout borders or around boggy pond margins. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 100cm (39"). Supplied in 9cm pot.

Culinary information: The leaves have an orange like smell and make a marvellous flavouring in salads. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Flowering Months
Feed and water Houttuynia plants regularly until fully established. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of Houttuynia in Spring to maintain plant vigour.
Pot up plug plants and grow them on in cool, bright, frost free conditions. When Houttuynia plants are well grown, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days prior to transplanting them into their final positions outdoors. Plant Houttuynia in any garden soil. This hardy perennial is both moisture and drought tolerant, and thrives in almost any position from sun to dappled shade. In favourable conditions, Houttuynia will spread freely, but can be easily contained if planted in containers.
