Full Description

Angel Vine is a fantastic ground cover or plant for rock gardens where hardy. It does not require much water, and can persists in a wide variety of light conditions from dappled shade to full sun. The small white flower shows up between the leaves of the foliage, and typically appears in the first year the plant is in the ground. Angel Vine makes an excellent topiary, and takes well to pruning and shaping. Pruning helps to keep the plant more compact and bushy, encouraging more branching. Indoors, it makes a pretty low maintenance houseplant. Angel Vine does well with bright indirect or direct light for several hours. With more light, the plants will need to be watered more often. Luckily, these plants can dry out occasionally as well. They do not need high humidity, but would not mind it either. Angel Vine takes well to pruning, and will stay more compact. Sometimes, these plants can be coaxed to flower inside, but chances of flowering are better outdoors.

Additional Information

History and introduction of Angel Vine:

Angel Vine is native to New Zealand, Australia, and Tasmania. The plant forms a natural mat or ground cover, and produces small white flowers along the stem. Following the flower is a very small, dark colored berry. The plant is unlikely to flower or produce fruit indoors. As it takes well to pruning, it can be shaped and formed into a topiary or onto a trellis, but normally will just trail and cascade. This plant produces underground stolons, which make it easy to propagate from cuttings.
