Muehlenbeckia complexa


Availability : Available

Description :

Maidenhair vine is good for ground cover or topiary, whichever you prefer!

The Muehlenbeckia genus has some twenty species native to the southern hemisphere (South America, Australia, New Zealand).

Muehlenbeckia complexa is a species native to New Zealand and as a vigorous grower is used in the ornamental garden as a ground cover and/or as a twineflower to cover banks, trellises, pergolas or for topiary.

Muehlenbeckia complexa is evergreen in mild climates, deciduous at -10°C and has rounded, dark green leaves, 0.5 to 2 cm in length, borne on fine interlaced stems. In the summer it produces bunches of small, white, scented flowers.

It has several uses in the garden. We like to contrast its multitude of small, rounded leaves with larger-leaved varieties or to structure it into shapes to create a scene with Equisetum in a bed of ferns.

Grow in sunlight (morning) or in partial shade in light, humus-rich soil. Protect from severe cold with an overwintering veil. Good resistance to salty sea breezes.
