Buy Muehlenbeckia complexa maidenhair vine: Unusual foliage and flowers

This climber is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun (ideally with a little protection during the hottest part of the day)
  • Soil: fertile, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast
  • Flowering period: July to August
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (may need some protection during the winter)

    Forming lots of thin, wiry stems, which are clothed in small dark green leaves, this fast-growing deciduous plant can be grown as either a shrubby, scrambling groundcover, or if given something to cling to, a twining climber. It is primarily grown for its delicate-looking foliage, which creates a light and airy feel, but it also produces small sprays of tiny greenish-white flowers in midsummer, followed by cream-coloured, inedible fleshy fruits.

  • Garden care: Find a spot where it is sheltered from cold, drying winds, and provide support if you would like it to climb. No routine pruning is required unless it outgrows its allotted space, in which case it should be trimmed back immediately after flowering.

Lovely healthy plant


Lovely healthy plant, been searching for one for a while. Scrambling up some trellis with great abandon, is wild and untameable like a crazy hairdo- I love it. Would be great filling and spilling in a large pot.
