Ground Elder - Aegopodium podagraria - commonly known as ground elder, is a flowering plant belonging to the carrot family Apiaceae that grows in shady locations. This plant's other common names include herb Gerard, bishop's weed, goutweed, gout wort, snow-in-the-mountain, English masterwort, and wild masterwort.
This plant is a perennial herb native to Europe, northern Asia, and Siberia. It is an ornamental plant native to the United States. Even though it grows in harsh conditions, it is a straightforward plant. It prefers consistently moist, well-drained soil in its ideal environment, though it can tolerate periods of drought. During long periods of drought, the foliage, particularly variegated species, becomes crisp and burnt.
Plant it in partial shade to ensure the best-looking foliage. That ensures that the plants receive enough light to develop beautiful variegation while also preventing them from burning the delicate foliage. As a result of its tenacious nature, it can thrive in either complete shade or even full sun.
This fast-growing herbaceous perennial grows to a height of 39 inches from underground rhizomes and is a good choice for a shrubby, semi-wild ground cover. Each of the stems is erect and hollow, with a groove in the middle. The upper leaves are ternate, broad, and toothed, while the lower leaves are not.
Emerging in late summer and autumn, the fruits are small and have a long bent shape reminiscent of pears. It blooms during the spring and early summer. Many pollination-inducing insects frequently visit the plant due to its rich organic flowers.
You can use this plant to treat digestive disorders, asthma, chest pain, kidney stones, and fluid retention, among other conditions. Some people use these plants to treat skin conditions such as psoriasis and vitiligo by applying them directly to the skin. Remember that this plant is very different from its more commonly used relative, Khella.
Some of the chemicals in the two species are the same, and their effects on the body are similar. Nevertheless, it is more commonly applicable for skin problems, and Khella is more beneficial for heart and lung problems.
Experts recommend cutting it back and covering the entire area with black plastic to eradicate this plant. You will need to leave the black plastic in place for at least two full seasons, most likely longer. That will cause the plants to cook and eventually kill the roots. The leafy, spreading foliage rarely grows much taller than 10 inches, but the flowering stalks that appear in early summer can reach heights of up to 30 inches.
As a result of its tiny white flower umbels, which are not particularly ornamental, some gardeners cut the flowering stalks back to keep the ground cover from looking untidy.

This spectacular design of its leaves gives out a simple attraction to gardeners like me. I can make accents of this with other shrubs.
