Excellent cascading from a large pot, this has large, dark green leaves with unusually pronounced deep purple veins.
It’s a vigorous variety which would also do well as a ground cover annual, forming a dense carpet in the border.
Plants can be lifted, trimmed back and overwintered in a conservatory or frost-free greenhouse
