Nepeta Glechoma 'Variegata'

Glechoma hederacea (syn. Nepeta glechoma Benth., Nepeta hederacea (L.) Trevir.) is an aromatic, perennial, evergreen creeper. It thrives in moist shaded areas, but also tolerates sun very well. It spreads by stolons or by seed and can become invasive, even surviving mowing. It forms dense mats and blooms late spring to early summer. 'Variegata' is most often grown for its handsome foliage and is ideal for window-boxes or hanging baskets.

Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Ground Ivy, Glechoma hederacea, is a creeping perennial that roots at the nodes very easily thus if you do not want it to take over your garden, it is best grown in clumps where you can confine the plant or you can grow it in pots or containers. Thrives in moist not saturated shaded areas, but will also tolerate sun.
