Aegopodium-Bishop’s
Weed, Goat Weed

Wherever
one goes, through many gardens and even in some woods
this green and yellow variegated plant has spread its
roots until it has almost come to be considered a troublesome
weed by many people, although in its place it is of
great value. The white flower is rather inconspicuous
and does not show up well against the light colored
leaves. Aegopodium Podagraria is a small creeping plant
with white margined leaves.

UTILIZE.
The Bishop’s Weed makes a beautiful border for a bed
of shrubs or flowers, if it is not allowed to spread
too freely. It grows to best advantage when used to
cover waste ground or shady places where grass will
not grow. It is well used in the narrow strips of soil
between the foundation wall and a sidewalk.

GENERAL.
It thrives in any kind of soil.

PROPAGATION.
By seeds, and division.
