Creeping Wire Vine Muehlenbeckia axillaris

Creeping Wire Vine also has very unique transparent fruit which form with little tiny black eyes on wire-like stems which run on top and underneath the soil. Foliage turns more bronze with heat or cold. Creeping Wire Vine tolerates drought, wind and poor soil. It’s perfect for use in a dry path, but will adapt to a garden setting as well.
