Sometimes considered a nuisance by gardeners because of its fast, carpeting growth, Pilea nummulariifolia is an all around, very popular, and easy to care for vining plant. It is a low, crawling, creeping vine that is native to South America and the West Indies. With its thick, healthy evergreen foliage, its crinkly leaves will quickly form a dense ground cover, attaching to pretty much anything in its path. It prefers moist soil and grows well in partial sun to full shade, reaching a height of 4-6”.
USDA Hardiness Zones 11-15
Due to its ease of care, this plant is a good candidate for container gardening, but will need to be pruned regularly. As a houseplant, it’s commonly seen trailing off of a hanging basket.
