Common Name: Red Flame Ivy, Hemigraphis Red Flame
Availabilty: In Stock
The Red Flame Ivy is a striking evergreen boasting unique crinkled foliage in deep purple and green tones that create gorgeous contrast in your garden. These beauties have a mild waffle-texture and produce dainty white flowers throughout Summer. Being a perennial, she will retreat in the cooler months, but return with a bang as soon as it warms up again.
This robust groundcover is brilliant for preventing erosion and prized for tropical landscaping. Being a shade lover, with a maximum height of around 200 mm and a spread of around 500 mm, she is ideal for underplanting larger plants or as an effective groundcover. Utilise her bordering walkways, container planting, rock gardens gorgeous colour contrast, mixed beds, underplanting, those hard-to-grow shady areas or even indoors in filtered light.
Many even pop her in a terrarium for stunning colour contrast. And did we mention that she's low-maintenance? The wins keep coming! For this little humidity-lover, we recommend a partly shaded position, protection from frost and wind, free draining soil and regular watering to see her best efforts. Add some fire to your life, with our lovely Red Flame Ivy.
