Houttuynia cordata 'Flore Plena'

Heart-leaved houttuynia

Native to eastern Asia, this is distinctive plant for waterlogged conditions such as bog gardens or pond sides. 

It has green, heart shaped, orange scented leaves tinged with purple. The double white, green centred flowers are small but profuse. 

It excels at spreading and can become invasive. In difficult, poorly drained situations this can be a blessing but we would caution against planting this in a wild situation where it may overrun native fauna. 

Ours are planted next to Gunnera and Rheum palmatum and have yet to take over the bog garden. If in doubt plant in a large pot sunk into the ground which will restrict its run.
