Quite hardy and fast growing.
Great for under trees, patios, hanging baskets, shade houses, ferneries and those shady places down sides of houses etc. Also great for cascading down walls, tubs, pots, uneven ground, embankments, etc.
Grows quite thick as a ground cover, helping cover bare ground and suppress weeds.
Grows in a wide range of soils. Add compost to all soils for faster growth, and sandy soils to aid water retention as well.
Reputed to having some herbal/medicinal application (see your doctor before administering herbal remedies).
Will grow in shade to half sun. Please keep out of the Summer afternoon sun.
