This slow spreading ground cover is a wonderful addition to the lightly shaded garden. Excellent at container's edge and is a great long-lived mixer in a pot. Its bright white edge and stripes on short leaves contrast well with ferns, Hosta and Bacopa. Late to emerge in spring. Compared to its cousin 'Island Brocade', it has white variegation rather than yellow.
