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. It really is stunning, as well as being easy to grow. 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.
