Although commonly known as "Swedish Ivy" this plant actually originates in Australia where it grows as a wild groundcover. The glossy scalloped leaves are beautiful carpeting the foreground of mixed borders or as an understory plant around large shrubs. Also looks great cascading from a hanging basket or spilling over the sides of a planter mixed with flowering plants. Produces small stems of white flowers, but is mostly grown for its lovely foliage and vigorous, rapid growth.
