This perennial weed is ideal for ground cover. It grows in shade completely covering the soil and self seeds itself everywhere. It leaves thin tuberous rhizomes in the ground. It is easily pulled up if the area is required for planting. I allow it to grow wild and cover any bare soil under plantings. The white flowers are also attractively produced above the light to dark green leaves.
