Gardeners' Notes:

I love this ground cover. The plant is very hardy and is thriving in my horrible soil. It can easily handle sun or shade, and once established it doesn't require much water. It will occasionally sprout little white flowers but will do so more often when climbing up something. It has a moderate growth rate although I wish it would spread a little more quickly. I saw a comment elsewhere calling this plant "invasive" but I would have to disagree. It does what it's supposed to do -- spread over the ground. It requires trimming and edging just a few times a year to keep it looking tidy. I'm thrilled with this plant and can't wait for it to completely "fill in" in my backyard.
