For a shade-loving ground cover with delicate flowers, look no further than the Bishop’s-Cap plant. Also commonly known as Twoleaf Miterwort, it is botanically named Mitella diphylla and is a member of the Saxifragaceae family of plants. With large, green, serrated foliage and tall, white flower spikes that bloom from spring until early summer, it is ideal for providing attractive ground cover in a shaded area.

Native to North America, the Bishop’s-Cap is suitable for growing in zones 3 to 8. Being shade tolerant, it is perfect for mass planting in a woodland area or underplanting an overshadowed area. With its clump-forming growth and perennial habit, it is easy to care for once established and low maintenance. Also grown in rock gardens, the Bishop’s-Cap looks best when planted in groups.

Bishop's-Cap Care

The Bishop’s-Cap thrives in partial shade but can also tolerate full shade. Preferring fertile and moist soil that is well drained, it can tolerate drier conditions but only once established. After planting, regular watering is required for at least the first year to prevent the soil from drying out. If grown in a medium-to-rich soil, supplementary fertilization is not generally required.

Once established, the Bishop’s-Cap tends to look after itself. However, as it prefers moist soil, it may require watering during prolonged dry spells. Once the flowers begin to fade they can either be deadheaded or left to form stunning seed heads that resemble a Bishop’s Miter hat. The seeds can be left to be distributed naturally or plants can be divided in spring.

Bishop's-Cap Spacing

Forming mounds of lush foliage, the Bishop’s-Cap will grow to a height of 12 inches and spread of 9 inches. When planting this perennial in groups, it is recommended to space plants at a distance of 12 inches.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
