(trailing/scandent) Coppery greengold subtlely shimmery leaves, slightly pebbled, edged in rusty brown, soon forming shingled brilliant ovals on cascading stems; a Worley hybrid which defines the perfect basic hanging basket subject, even tolerant of less than ideal conditions. Will always be a favorite indoors where it can become spectacular if allowed to climb (stems rooting all the way) up a moss pole to display the glossy bronzed shingled foliage to great advantage--but also, why not try it as well in your summer windowbox or patio combination urns--most certainly the "spiller" can be a thriller?
|Cultural Code||HP TGH|
Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.
If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.×
