Grammazoo's Garden

Goutweed, Bishop's weed

Genus: Aegopodium.

Species: Aegopodium podagraria.

I love the varigated greens in this drought resistant ground cover, but it is very invasive. We planted it around the base of the lilac tree and smaller sugar maple where my dalmation had destroyed the grass, and it did quite well.
