Houttuynia cordata, also known as the heart-leaved houttuynia, are rhizomatous perennials with attractive, yellow spiked flowers and white, petal-like bracts at their base. Their cheerful white and yellow appearance and distinctive, heart-shaped foliage creates a beautiful effect in herbaceous borders. They can reach up to 50cm in height, and their spread can extend up to 1 metre. Their strongly fragranced, orange scented leaves will add a pleasant aroma to your garden.

Planting

  • Maximum plant spread: 1m

Houttuynia thrives in moist, poorly-drained soil, either in full sun or partial shade. It can be very invasive, especially in wet soils, spreading by underground stems. It is therefore ideal for containers where its spread can be restricted.

This plant is suitable for zones 1 & 2 of a pond.

Caring and Maintenance

These plants are low-maintenance, but spread vigorously. Divide regularly to limit spread, especially in spring. Keep soil moist, and in the winter protect from the cold with dry mulch. Propagate by seed, by division, or using semi-ripe cuttings of young basal shoots.
