Cymbalaria muralis

Kenilworth Ivy
Annuals, Ground covers, Perennials


European natives related to snapdragons (Antirrhinum). Not showy, but these perennials have their uses as small-scale ground covers in cool, shady places or as decorations for terrarium or hanging basket. In ground, can be invasive.

Cymbalaria muralis

Usually grown as annual. Dainty creeper that may appear uninvited in shadier parts of garden, sometimes even sprouting in chinks of stone or brick wall. Trailing stems root at joints. Smooth leaves are 1 in. wide or less, with three to seven toothlike lobes. Blooms mainly appear in spring, with small lilac blue flowers carried singly on stalks a little longer than leaves.
