Snow On The Mountain

 

Snow On The Mountain is an annual ground cover like plant that grows to be anywhere from eighteen to twenty-four feet in height and does best in environments that provide full sunlight to partial shade.  Be mindful as this plant is poisonous if ingested and if you have sensitive skin, it may cause some irritation or allergic reaction.  Just be careful when your pets and children are outside playings as well as yourself. It grows for its beauty and when planting it should be spaced about twenty-four inches apart to ensure room for its growth and development.  It is also drought tolerant that makes it ideal for those with drier climates.  This ground cover is perfect also for areas of your yard or landscape that has deep shade where other plants and flowers have failed.  This ground cover will add amazing life and color to this otherwise dull and lifeless area of your garden or yard.  It is also referred to as Bishop’s Weed or Goutweed.  Snow on the mountain has a shallow root system and will grow quickly once established. It will grow alongside other plants and flowers without interfering in their growth and health.  What is better than a garden full of beautiful foliage, flowers, shrubs and ground covers that grow together without interference to create a magical area for you to enjoy? This ground cover will sit above most other plants, and the foliage is variegated and wonderful to look.  The white highlights on the leaves will sparkle in the deep shaded environment of your yard that will bring a pop of color.  This ground cover will be particularly hardy in climate zones four through nine and will be easy to grow and easy in the right locations and conditions.  It will adapt and tolerate a variety of different soil conditions, but they must all be well drained.  This plant will also not tolerate full sunlight conditions, partially shaded or fully shaded areas are the best for this particular ground cover. It can tolerate heat or climates that are particularly hot.  Shade will be needed to ensure the survival and health of this plant.  However, if the temperatures are milder, it will tolerate a little morning or afternoon sun.  Even though this is an easy grower and will be low maintenance, the only issue will be control.  You want to keep this ground cover under control and keep it from spreading to areas of your garden or landscape where it is not wanted.  This plant will spread by underground rhizomes that are released into the soil.  The best way to control this ground cover is to put an edging around the plant that will sink into the ground about three inches or so. It will keep the rhizomes from spreading through the soil.  If it spreads or has already spread, you can use an herbicide to solve the issue.  However, this ground cover will only respond to this kind of treatment if there is new growth on the plant.  The best time to apply the herbicide will be during the early spring months, or you can cut or mow the plants down to promote new growth and then apply the herbicide. Keep in mind that it is that when you are growing this ground cover, fully green colored plant may emerge.  You will need to remove this part of the plant immediately as this is a more vigorous and aggressive type of snow on the mountain and will overtake other plants around it.  Snow on the mountain, also known as bishop’s weed will require very little care and maintenance.  This plant will also produce beautiful blooms.  They will be small white flowers and will normally appear during the late spring months into the early summer months.  Many gardeners think that the flowers distract you from the beauty of the remarkable foliage, but it is quite the opposite.  The flowers only enhance the white highlights on the leaves and will add even more color to the shaded area you have decided to plant this ground cover.  Some even remove the flowers as they appear, and it will not harm the plant either way.
