Use: Bishop's weed is grown primarily for its variegated foliage which brightens up shady areas. It is probably best used as a groundcover for waste ground and dark sites where grass grows poorly. It is often found planted in the strip between the sidewalk and the foundation on the north side of older homes.
Culture: You can reduce its prolific nature by planting in sites with poor, dry soil or confined areas. The variegated foliage may burn slightly in full sun. You can keep it low and even by mowing it 2 or 3 times a year.
