Houttuynia Cordata 'Chameleon' - 1L Potted Pond Plant

  • Catalogue Code 5130-6324
  • Pack Contents: 1x 1L Potted Pond Plant

A wide spreading fast growing perennial shrub which is a great low maintenance plant for your pond margins.

The delicate heart shaped leaves produce a kaleidoscope of colour and have green and yellow pattern with striking red-edged leaves. These leaves are brightest when grown in full sun but will turn a pretty gold when in grown in the shade.

The plant produces small white flowers. The leaves have a wonderful strong scent which is similar to oranges. The plant encourages wildlife to your pond as the leaves are a favourite resting place for pollinators and especially dragonflies.

This plant doesn't need to be grown near your pond but favours heavy clay moist soil. It is prone to spreading which you can easily prevent if you don't wish it to do this by dividing or by planting in a container.

This plant is also commonly known as Heart Leaved Houttuynia and Chameleon plant.
