Houttuynia Cordata ‘Flame’ is a wide-spreading deciduous shrub that is versatile and grown primarily for its bright coloured variegated foliage. This robust shrub thrives in a wide range of soils and offers vibrant foliage interest in summer and autumn. Its heart-shaped leaves are aromatic when crushed, having the capability to win the heart of any garden visitor.
Its dark green leaves are margined beautifully with reddish-pink engulfing a patch of yellow. These variegated leaves create an ornamental impression all around summer and autumn. It is not just the foliage, but the short white flowers with yellow spikes it blooms that steal garden attention.
Houttuynia Flame thrives in moist or wet soil, even near the ponds marginally submerged in water. It performs well in full or partial sun light that boosts the bright colour of its foliage.
The young plants may need little care with regular watering. Once established, this Cordata shrub will form a low cluster of multi-coloured ground cover. It will grow to a small height of 1 feet, making it a fine choice for underplanting or covering the ground.
Houttuynia Cordata Flame is a low maintenance shrub, suiting a seasoned or beginner gardener. It looks pretty exceptional mounted in containers or when used for edging. Its leaves will release sweet orange scent when crushed, delighting your garden from summer to autumn.
