  • Regular price $4.99


Oval leaf is bright to glossy medium green with small scalloped edges.

Pilea Creeping Charlie is native to the Caribbean and South America. Not to be confused with Plectranthus (Swedish Ivy) this Creeping Charlie comes from the Pilea family. This fast grower is great for filling in spaces.

Often grown indoors as a house plant. When outside it is considered weedy. Each oval leaf is bright to glossy medium green with small scalloped edges. Flowers are white greenish but are insignificant. Sprawling fleshy stems can root at the nodes where stems contact soil so it can be quite weedy. If planting outdoors, use as a bedding or container annual.
