Muehlenbeckia axillaris


Availability : Available

Description :

Native to Australia and New Zealand, Muehlenbeckia axillaris or Creeping Wire Vine is a sub-shrub with wire-like stems and tiny, shiny green, rounded leaves.

This semi-evergreen ground cover plant grows rapidly and is suitable for large areas that need uniform cover, such as an embankment or rockfill.

Once established it is quite resistant to dry conditions and a bit of trampling.

« The flowers are insignificant. Deciduous foliage. So, what is this plant doing in our Perennial Plants catalogue?

Well, it's useful for lots of things! Most commonly, we use it as an effective ground cover: where Creeping Wire Vine spreads no grass will tread!

You can also use your imagination to create interesting topiary shapes (on frames), a hanging basket or a plant fountain! »

Goes well with spring-flowering bulbs.

Grow in the sun (not too hot) or slight shade (morning sun) in ordinary, light and well-drained soil. Avoid heavy, damp, clay soils.

Hardiness: -12 °C

Grows in dry shade and can resist competition from other roots.

Maintenance: to bring out the mattress effect and make the cover denser, mow the carpet once a year. Do not plant in a rock garden or mix with other plants!
