Color Changing Groundcover 

The Houttuynia ‘Chameleon Plant’, Houttuynia cordata, is one of the most popular ground covers around. The Chameleon plant changes color, thus the name. You can also bring it indoors for a houseplant.

Small white flowers appear from July to August, but sometimes hard to see because of its foliage.

It is an extremely hardy ground cover and easy to grow but can become very invasive. Being similar in shape to English Ivy, it features boldly variegated leaves of red, pink, white, green, and yellow with a plant height of 15”.

Houttuynia performs in full sun to light shade and needs a consistently moist soil in a well-drained area.

They have a fresh, somewhat citrus-like scent when crushed.

Use Houttuynia ‘Chameleon plant’ as a ground cover, in rock gardens, with water plants, as a houseplant, or in scented gardens.
