Formerly P. nummularius and P. australis.. The ever popular "Swedish Ivy" vine with waxy crennate leaves in pairs on strong cascading stems eventually tipped with racemes of white flowers--technically the clusters of flowers are in verticillasters a half inch around. This is an old so-called "Victorian Favorite." It is often seen in some areas of the country as a patio hanging basket plant. It works well in the home also.

Cultural Codes

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.
