Plants By Type
Bishops Weed, or Snow on the Mountain, offers up a spectacular showcase during the summer months. Its adaptability in working well in many environments also provides a selling feature. The flowers show themselves in large clusters of subdued white, and bloom from June through September. The large, showy clusters start out light green and eventually change to white upon maturing throughout the season. The flowers not only proudly display incredible beauty in the outdoors, but also make a lovely transition to the indoors by brightening up your home in either cut or dried form. The leaves are gray/green ovals from that grow from four to eight inches. When deciding upon a planting location for the plant, the future spread of the immature plants must certainly be kept in mind: in other words – give this shrub room to grow! Full shade is not a friend of the plant; instead, consider planting by fences or other trees and shrubs for a dappled sunlight effect. Its botanical name is Aegopodium Podagraria and has the best results in climate zones three through nine. It can become two feet tall or more, depending on its surroundings, and prefers partial or full sunlight. This plant is adaptable and can grow in just about any soil conditions with no problems at all. It is great for planting in border areas of the landscape such as walkways or driveways. One can use it as a focal point within the garden if so desired.
