Description

A well-loved houseplant with a carpet of small, shiny dark green leaves, excellent for creeping along a mantelpiece or shelf. Or grow it in an indoor hanging basket, where it will trail beautifully and can be clipped to stop it growing too vigorously.

Care Tips

This works really well as a houseplant or container plant and is happy confined to a small pot. It can benefit from pruning to keep a compact shape.
