The flowers bloom in delicate white clusters, and some ornamental varieties have a pale green, an almost white border around the edges of the leaves. This relatively low-growing plant is perfect for ground cover, boulevards, and borders. The beautiful, uniform leaves of Bishops Weed create a well-groomed appearance wherever it is planted.
Bishops Weed originates from Europe and has had a variety of uses throughout history. Medieval monks included it in poultices to treat gout and other joint ailments. It has also been harvested for culinary purposes, both as a seasoning and as a leaf vegetable. Illustrations of this unique plant can be found in many ancient texts. The pleasant aesthetic of a patch of Bishops Weed has timeless appeal.

Bishops Weed is exceptionally easy to care for. Place the plants one foot apart, and add a layer of mulch or compost if the soil quality is poor. Once planted, it will grow successfully on its own. Gardeners value bishops Weed because it suppresses weed growth. This makes it ideal for those who prefer low-maintenance landscaping, or for planting in areas where maintenance might be difficult, such as a hard to reach the corner of the yard.
