Houttuynia cordata 'Chameleon'
Deciduous, Ground covers, Perennials, Aquatic
Native from Japan south and east to the mountains of Java and Nepal. Spreading, underground stems send up a 9-in.-high blanket of foliage. Heartshaped green, 3-in.-long look very much like those of English ivy (Hedera helix). Foliage emits an odd scent when crushed, reminiscent of orange peel. Inconspicuous clusters of white-bracted flowers are like tiny dogwood (Cornus) blossoms. This unusual ground cover disappears completely in winter, even in mild climates. Spreads aggressively in wet soil.'Chameleon'
