Cymbalaria muralis Kenilworth Ivy

CYMBALARIA MURALIS KENILWORTH IVY

Cymbalaria muralis 
Kenilworth Ivy 
This unique plant forms tons of tiny, fast growing runners of small, green kidney-shaped leaves that creep and hold tight to any rock or crevice. The runners form on top and underneath the soil. Dwarf purple flowers bloom continuously throughout the summer. Great look for courtyards and pathways. Perfect in shady locations and marvelous over flower bulbs!

Tips from Fran
This Cymbalaria is an old time favorite and I would have to agree. I have seen this plant grow with only natual rainwater. I have also seen it completely spreading over gravel, inside a greenhouse that didn’t have any use for years. It seems to do extremely well on retaining walls as well.
