Is it a vine? A ground cover? A hanging plant? It looks like a cross between boxwood and a maidenhair fern. What is it? Muehlenbeckia complexa, a little vining, scrambling plant from New Zealand. I love the way it fills in here and there. Shade or part sun is the plant's preferred home but it will grow in full sun with extra water. I'm using it partially clothe the cliff part of Whiskey Creek.
OK so this week's plant of the week is a short one.
