angelvine aka creeping wire vine

Angelvine adds a soft, fine texture to plantings or containers. Drought- and heat-tolerant, it is low-water- use but may reward a wilt by dropping some leaves. Feed at least every month or so.

Planting Tips

Spacing: 12-15″
Height: 6-10″
Exposure: Sun to part sun

Dense, wire like stems are covered with  tiny small round light green leaves. Angelvine is grown for its foliage since the tiny white flowers it produces in summer are not much to look at.  Amazingly hardy-  we had some in a container- outdoors- during the winter of 2014 and as of March 20,  new small green leaves are sprouting out of the formerly brown, dead-looking stems.  In milder winters it will stay evergreen. Clip it to shape it or to neaten stems that have gotten leggy- it recovers rapidly.  Angelvine  adds a soft, fine texture to plantings or containers.
