This popular groundcover is a dense, woody-stemmed, broadleaf evergreen to semi-evergreen that features lustrous, dark green leaves which turn dark purple in fall and winter. Inconspicuous, greenish-white flowers may appear in June. Makes an attractive edge along paths or sidewalks, for erosion control, or as an ivy-like climbing vine for covering walls, chimneys or fences. Excellent tolerance for urban conditions.
Grow in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in sun to shade. Tolerates wide range of soils and soil conditions, except for wet ones.
