|Vigorous perennial grown for its attractive, heart-shaped, ovate mid-green foliage variegated with gold. This shade-loving trailer is at home in the hanging basket or as a ground cover. The light colored foliage makes the most of what light there is in shady spaces, especially under trees, where little else will grow. Spiked, whorled, pink and white striped flowers early in the summer. Flowers attract bees. Evergreen in milder climates, deciduous in colder areas. Requires occasional trimming to keep neat and tidy.
