This is a genus comprising about fifteen species of hardy shrubs, mostly natives of Australia and New Zealand. They are of very easy culture, thriving in any fair garden soil and a sunny situation.
Muehlenbeckia coraplexa is one of the best of our hardy climbers, being excellent for growing over rocky ledges, old stumps, etc., for hanging or drooping over the rims of vases or for hanging over walls. Its habit is dense. On account of its distinct form, the brownish color of its leaves and its heavy spray-like branches it is very valuable for cutting.
This climber is propagated by cuttings placed in a cold frame in September and shaded during sunshine until well rooted.
