Bishop Weed Snow on the Mountain
Variegated Perfect Groundcover
The Bishops Goutweed, 'Aegopodium podagraria Variegatum', also known as Bishop Weed, is one of the most popular groundcovers on the market today. It is easy to grow, adaptable, and can be invasive.
With its variegated foliage, it is one of a kind. ‘Snow on the Mountain’ forms a quick, dense, weed-proof carpet that is easy to grow, even in difficult conditions.
It should be planted in full sun but will tolerate morning shade. To prevent from seeding, the white flower heads should be removed; this will also help keep it looking tidy.
‘Snow on the Mountain’ has a plant height of 10-15” and a plant spread of 1-2’. ‘Snow on the Mountain’ is great as a ground cover or used in mass plantings. It is rabbit and deer resistant, extremely drought tolerant, grows vigorously, and spreads by rhizomes.
The plants can be mowed, on a high setting, a few times a year; regenerate the foliage in mid-summer when it starts weakening.
Make sure you plant ‘Bishops Goutweed’ in an area where it can be contained.

- How to slow down Snow on the Mountain Top Review by CJ
When it first comes up to slow it down you need to snatch it out the ground and put into a yard bag or garbage can and make sure NONE OF IT HITS THE GROUND. This allows other plants you have in that same garden box the time they need to get established and taller than the Bishops Weed (Snow on the Mountain Top). When it seeds, cut off all the seed pods and if you need snatch back more of the plant from the ground. You do not need to gentle with is plants because of it's aggressive nature.. I have found that over the last 20 years that if I do this at the beginning of every season I have better control of this plant. Do not have on your shoes or anywhere that it can end up moving itself to another area i n your yard. I have also found that ROUND UP DOES work at eliminating this plant.
