Wax Ivy (Senecio Macroglossus)
Styled in Bonnie Planter
The Wax Vine is robust and lively and will soon climb, with support, to a reasonable height. It showcases shiny, waxy leaves that resemble those of English Ivy. The plant is perfect as a lush hanging basket or trellised climber in a pot. In bright sun, the white stems and leaf edges blush a beautiful cream that creates a lovely contrast with the green.
