Design Ideas This popular mounding ground cover grows fast, its evergreen branches arching as it spreads. So frequently used that it is often overlooked until its bright red berries appear. Provide rich contrast to its needle-like leaves by planting dark-green, broad-leafed plants adjacent in a small garden. In a hanging basket or container, include a bright flowering plant or one that is taller and straighter to balance the form.
Flower Color White
Foliage Color Light Green
Companion Plants Lantana (Lantana); Hibiscus (Hibiscus); Cordyline (Cordyline); Mandevilla (Mandevilla); Plumbago (Plumbago)
CARE
Care Thrives in enriched, evenly moist, well-drained soils. Avoid harsh, hot afternoon sun exposures. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, prefers regular moisture, but tolerates mild drought. For a tidy appearance, remove old, faded stems. Tolerates mild frost.
HISTORY
Lore Though it is called a fern, this plant is not related in any way to that spore-bearing primitive group.
