Snow on the Mountain is Rusty

Every year in mid summer my snow-on-the-mountain, variegated bishop’s weed, turns rusty and starts looking bad. Is there anything I can do to prevent this in the future?

This is a common problem with snow on the mountain (Aegopodium podagraria ‘Variegatum’). Cut back the plants to 6 inches several times during the growing season. You can use your mower on its highest setting. Regular pruning will eliminate flowers and encourage thick fresh growth that resists browning.
