Snow on the Mountain Aegopodium 'Variegatum'
Cultivation: Snow on the Mountain is a very easy to
grow perennial groundcover that will eventually spread all over
the place. It is best grown in beds with natural barriers to help
control its invasive habit. It is a good choice for large beds
where it is difficult to grow other plants.
Plant Snow on the Mountain in full sun to partial shade. Avoid areas
of hot sunshine, like along a south facing foundation. Snow on the Mountain is tolerant of all soil types. It
grows quickly and is difficult to remove once established. Remove
the unsightly flower stems for best display. Foliage that reverts
to green should be removed as it can become dominate and
eventually take over the planting.
Propagation: Purchase pre-started Snow on the Mountain
plants at your local
Garden Center. Space container grown plants as close or as far
apart as you wish. Once established Snow on the Mountain can be divided in
spring or fall.
