Product Information
Bishop Weed is an excellent, fast-growing groundcover–a herbaceous perennial that will cover bare areas quickly. Its creamy white and light green foliage will brighten partial shade and full-shade spots. This plant grows best in U.S.D.A. plant hardiness zones 4 to 9.
It came to North America from Western Asia and Northern Europe. However, it is well-adapted to local growing habitats in the United States today. You often see it growing wild with zero care in shady spots like ditches, near the edges of natural areas or woods, and along power lines.
It can reach as much as 3′ tall and has lovely variegated, cream, green leaves and tall, skinny stalks. Many gardeners use this in the middle row of their garden borders.
The flowers are a lovely shade of white with a drop of cream. They bloom for several weeks during the last weeks of spring into the first of summer. Blooms form from tiny florets that cluster together in a whimsical umbrella shape. They attract pollinator insects, like bees, butterflies, moths, and dragonflies.
Bishop Weed has a creeping habit, making it perfect for covering vast expanses faster than you think. It is a vigorous grower because it spreads through a robust underground root system. New shoots emerge from the soil reliably and quickly. Gardeners who love the good looks of this plant but want to control the fast spread do so by planting it in large containers or urns and placing them in their shade gardens.
But that fast growth rate also provides two significant benefits: soil decompaction and erosion prevention.
