This plant is best known for its vivid variegated foliage, in shades of green, yellow and red, with simple white flowers in early summer. The strongest coloration is achieved in full or partial sun; in shade the leaves are a more subtle green and gold. A good plant for ground cover, it is best kept in a pot if you do not want it to spread. It is sometimes known as "Orange Peel Plant", because its leaves give off a strong orange scent if crushed.  

We recommend starting your Houttuynia cordata 'Chameleon' off in a pot of 1 litre capacity. Read more on how to pot and care for your plant here.
