Creeping Wire Vine, (Muehlenbeckia axillaris), is a versatile and resilient evergreen perennial ground cover native to New Zealand.

This ground-hugging vine boasts dark colored wiry stems that sprawl elegantly, forming a dense mat that gracefully covers the ground or spills over containers. Its small, rounded, glossy leaves showcase a vibrant green hue, creating a charming contrast against its wiry, twisting branches. Grows outdoors in USDA zones 8-10.

Ideal for cascading over walls, draping from hanging baskets and containers, or as a low-maintenance ground cover, the Creeping Wire Vine thrives in well-drained soil and is tolerant of a range of light conditions, from full sun to partial shade. Also make a great house plant.

This versatile plant is resilient against drought once established but appreciates regular watering during dry spells. Pruning helps maintain its desired shape and encourages dense growth.

Considered an excellent option for adding texture to rock gardens, edging pathways, or accentuating borders, the Creeping Wire Vine remains a popular choice for its adaptability, ease of care, and ability to enhance various outdoor spaces. Do not plant close to your favorite perennial as Creeping Wire Vine can be aggressive. To control, prune or use your lawn mower to keep in check.
