Description

Houttuynia cordata is a vigourous groundcover with attractive green heart-shaped foliage and a white four-petaled flower in the summer. It has a distinctive orange-peel aroma when the foliage is rubbed and is widely used in Asia for its health-promoting properties.

Houttuynia cordata is an invasive plant and should be used with careful planning. It needs to have its root-run restricted in a large shallow container.
