The Purpleleaf Wintercreeper is a fast growing hardy ground cover. It has an Ivy-like growth that makes an outstanding evergreen ground cover or low spreading shrub. The deep green foliage turns a beautiful, rich plum color during the cool season. It tolerates some shade, especially in hot climates. It has the potential to climb nearby structures or walls. This might also be the most cold hardy and durable ground covers and of the few that offers an autumn show.
