Cymbalaria aequitriloba
Mini Kenilworth Ivy
Zone 6 to Zone 9
Plant Shapes: Spreader Carpet

Mini Kenilworth Ivy is a wonderful little filler plant for growing in between flagstones or small containers. Tiny scalloped green leaves form a flat mat, studded by miniature mauve-purple snapdragon-like flowers in spring. An ideal choice for growing in shady crevices, particularly on walls. Nice in a trough, almost looking like a carpet of moss. Plants will spread and stems will root into the soil. Easily increased by ripping apart into small pieces, and sometimes will self sow where happy. Performs best in cool-summer regions. Evergreen in mild winter regions. Native to Spain and other parts of southern Europe. Not happy in regions with high summer heat and humidity.
