Wire Vine is a fantastic ground cover or plant for rock gardens where hardy. It does not require much water and can persist in a wide variety of light conditions, from dappled shade to full sun. The small white flower shows up between the leaves and typically appears in the first year the plant is in the ground. Wire 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. Wire 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.

Wire Vine takes well to pruning and will stay more compact. Sometimes, Wire Vine plants can be coaxed to flower inside, but flowering chances are better outdoors. Creeping wire vine makes a good trailing plant indoors. The small, round green leaves appear to grow from a thin, nearly black wiry vine. Wire Vine is available as a perennial in zones 6 through 9 but also makes an excellent houseplant. Where hardy, wire vine makes a great groundcover, returning year after year and flowering with a small, white flower that appears in between the leaves and foliage. Indoors can be shaped into a topiary or left to trail and cascade out of the container. Wire Vines can be paired with a more upright plant-like Croton or Snake Plant, which can handle bright indirect or bright direct light with similar watering requirements.
