The stems are narrow and can grow over 12 inches long, trailing from a pot or creeping along the ground and rooting at the nodes. Leaves are green, lined with fine dark green or purple striped and translucent "window". Exposure to bright sunlight will deepen the purple tones on the leaves and stems. Flowers are small, brush-like, white to nearly white, and appear from spring to fall on long peduncles.
Light: keep in partial shade if outdoors, which is their preference in summer, and bright sunlight if indoors. They will grow in full shade but will become lank and leggy
Hardiness: 9b-11b (25-50 degrees F)
