Trim the roots around the basket if you want to control its spread or the Houttuynia cordata 'Chameleon' will colonise an area of water around it. Be warned - It will freely colonize wet mud. As a rafting plant that is allowed to grow freely it will use plenty of surplus nutrients so help to keep pond or container water free from algae.
