Aegopodium (Snow-on-the-Mountain) ee-guh-POE-dee-um
Goutweed is an aggressive plant in the Apiaceae family that forms dense patches by means of it’s spreading long, white and branching rhizomes. Goutweed can be found growing naturally in much of the U.S. It’s natural habitat is disturbed lands such as felled forests, abandoned fields and pastures. Typical patches form a dense canopy, creating a ground cover that is very low maintenance. Often, the vigorous spread will not produce flower-bearing foliage if the site is under dense shade. Full sun may cause the leaf edges to brown.
