Watermelon Pellionia (Pellionia Repens var. Pulchra) is a wonderful plant for hanging baskets, for using as a ground cover beneath topiary or other plants. 

It produces delicate, oval, dark green foliage with bright green to silver patterns in the middle. These striking patterns resembles the colouration of a watermelon. Hence, it is commonly known as Watermelon Pellionia. 

When grown outdoor in shade, the Pellionia Repens var. Pulchra can grow tiny white flowers on pinkish stalks. 

When grown indoors, it is superb to soften hard bench spaces with trails or as a hanging basket to create 'flow'.
