Planted from a 4” container a little less than a year ago its leaves are now almost as long as the entire plant was tall back then.
And its tiny stem has become a trunk!
Wait…what’s that wrapping around the trunk?
Wire vine (Muehlenbeckia axillaris)! I thought I pulled all of that thug, turns out a missed a few pieces and this one had worked its way to the top of the Euphorbia.
- Evergreen shrub to 5ft tall, 6ft wide
- Said to grow in zones 8a – 10b although I had one die in a more exposed site at 18F
- Likes sun to partial shade and is drought tolerant once established
- Wants well drained soil
I’ll be curious to see if it blooms this summer, the flowers aren’t all that showy but I’d still like to see them. I've never met a Euphorbia bloom that I don't love.
