: Set out plants 18 inches apart, ideally in a moisture-retentive soil and in a cool, light shaded situation. The striking red colors of the foliage are best developed when more light is available. Houttuynia also makes an attractive pot plant or hanging basket plant.
Keep in a contained area as plant will spread by creeping stems. Ultimate size will range from 6 to 24 inches, depending on soil richness and available moisture.
