Where to Site Your Houttuynia

Plant in mixed borders or pots if you wish to restrict the spreading.
How to Grow and Look after Your Hosta
Tolerant or most soils from dry to wet in sun or shade. If grown in wet soil, then they are prone to spreading by underground stems.
Propagate by division in spring
You either love or hate it as, to some people, that smell is awful out of context of a fruit bowl. The leaf colour is very attractive.
