Bishop's Weed Characteristics
Bishop's Weed is a "creeping" ground cover with serrated green leaves rimmed with white. The leaves grow to 3" long. Bishop's Weed also produces relatively unattractive white flowers that should be pruned. Cutting off the flowers prevents new growth within the cover, helping it to maintain a clean look.
Bishop's Weed grows easily in many types of soils and prefers full sun to partially shaded areas. This makes it a popular option beneath trees and larger shrubs. It does not attract deer.
Avoid planting near other small plants as it's aggressive growth may strangle other perennials and even grass. It is best contained in a manufactured border.
