Houttuynia Cordata Chameleon grows from a bindweed type of root system, but roots remain shallow, so are not difficult to control. Tolerates shade.
Top tip: No problem in a planting crate in the pond, but with its scrambling growth can be invasive if let loose in the garden.
Flowers: Sweet little white flowers produced amidst stunning heart-shaped, red/dark green/buttery yellow foliage.
Depth of water over the soil: 5-40cm
Planting: Plant into 5lt planting crate using heavy garden loam or Westland Aquatic Soil.
