Comments: Used as ground cover and will survive light freezes with minimum damage. Birds eat the fruit. Grows reasonably well in full sunlight to rather heavy shade. Excellent for growing in containers, especially hanging containers so the long strands of the wiry, needlelike foliage can drape over the sides of the container. Normally pest free. Fertilize plants several times during the summer months to promote more vegetative growth.
