Chameleon Fish Mint - 3 plants

         
 
6 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
Houttuynia cordata 'Chameleon' One of the most beautiful plants for your landscape. Flowering plant native to Japan, Korea, southern China, and Southeast Asia. This stunning plant has variations of red, green, and white that make for a beautiful ground cover in shaded areas. This herb is uniquely identified by its intriguing fish-like flavor that is used in many Vietnamese fresh or meat dishes in addition to soups. Easy to grow in moist, shady locations. Plant in an area that you want it because this plant is very persistent when growing conditions are excellent. Hardy in zones 6-10. (SHIPS IN APRIL)

Review:

I spent a lot of my childhood weeding this stuff. The thought of someone paying to pollute their garden with this plant breaks my heart. Please pass.

Review:

Very invasive. Even when you dig out the roots, any tiny piece left will regrow. Even resistant to pesticides. Will grow out around the edges of cardboard or plastic used to smother. Wish I had never planted this.

Review:

I love Baker Creek, so please support them by buying anything else but this plant. It really should not be sold anywhere. It is terribly invasive. I ultimately had to pay a landscaping company a lot of money to dig out and put new soil in a a huge garden because of it, and its still not gone. Do not plant this!

Review:

I’ve been working to eliminate this plant from a small area where it was used as a ground cover. It’s been three years and I’ve dug out a 5 cubic yard area and treated all leaves and stems of the plant with 12% glyphosate on a tri-weekly basis. Don’t ever use this.

Review:

The Missouri Botanical Gardens PlantFinder has this plant listed - check the reviews before you consider getting this plant. It is invasive, and "persistent when growing conditions are excellent" is a grave understatement. Controlling the spread of this plant is a nightmare - Roundup hardly phases it, and pulling only creates more pieces for it grow back from. In addition to the fish-like flavor it often has a fish-like smell when cut or pulled (Baker's may have one of the varieties that smells better, I don't know). You will never get rid of this plant. The neighbors will most likely have to deal with it too. Whoever owns your property after you will have to deal with this plant. Forewarned is forearmed - consider your site carefully and do not underestimate how invasive this plant is!
