Houttuynia cordata 'Chameleon' may be a small aquatic perennial but its unique characteristics of small,heart-shaped leaves which look as if they have been hand painted by an artist with red splatters and cream edges are a welcome flush of colour through the season from late spring through to autumn. A spring, display of spikes of tiny yellow flowers increases this plants attraction. Cordata is a wide-spreading herbaceous perennial which will make up to 30cm in height.

Available as a 1L plant
