This fast-growing, trailing plant makes a beautiful carpet of foliage to edge a border or use 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 flowers, but is mostly grown for its lovely foliage and vigorous, rapid growth.
