Very useful, i have been looking for this plant,but didnt know its Common name (Houttuynia) so now I do I`m going to get one.
I used the plant search to find the correct name, all I could recall was it began HOUT so top marks for a part word search, bringing the correct result in no time at all. I didnt realise it was invasive.
Houttuynia can be very invasive and is difficult to remove if it starts to take over as even a tiny piece of root will grow and spread. Roots spread about 2" to 3" below the surface of the soil so not too difficult to dig out if required.
Has a nice Orange scent however very invasive and pops up in gaps. You have been warned
