Snow on the Mountain Growing and Maintenance Tips

Pro: Aegopodium grows in sites where nothing else seems to  succeed. Con: Aegopodium seems to succeed in sites even if you don't want it. This ground cover offers a quick solution for light shade to shady areas and is especially effective at stabilizing slopes, but beware, it is difficult to eradicate once established. Flowers can be removed to prevent seeding and keeping the patch neat and tidy. Remove all reverted foliage.
