- Care & Maintenance: See: Kenilworth Ivy
Kenilworth Ivy (Cymbalaria Muralis) - Grow this lovely ground cover from seed! With scalloped leaves, and pretty lilac colored blooms, Kenilworth Ivy makes a wonderful ground cover plant. It performs well even in full shade, and it loves to cascade down a stone wall or spill over the sides of containers. The Cymbalaria Muralis plant also makes charming hanging baskets. This trailing vine takes very little maintenance except for regular waterings, and being cut back and deadheaded before setting seeds. Cymbalaria is a prolific self-sower, spreading its Kenilworth Ivy seeds all over the garden. To keep it more contained, deadheading is helpful. Kenilworth Ivy makes a very nice flowering ground cover plant. Other names are Linaria Cymbalaria, Ivy-Leaved Toadflax, and Coliseum Ivy.
Sow Kenilworth Ivy seeds indoors 10 weeks before the last frost is expected. Use starter trays, sow the ground cover seeds on the surface of sterile soil, gently pressing the seed into the soil. Do not cover the Kenilworth Ivy seeds. They need light to germinate. After danger of frost has passed, transplant the young ground cover plants into the garden.
