Green leaves spring and summer and purplish red leaves in fall and winter. A ground cover that does not lose its leaves in winter. Presents a colorful, fresh appearance throughout the year.
Stops erosion on steep banks!
As Purple Leaf Wintercreeper grows and spreads over the ground, each of its many stems forms roots. One of the best ways to join the ecological battle to preserve our natural resources is by planting Red-Leaved Wintercreeper. As it binds the soil, not only from its original roots, but from roots along the stems, it effectively prevents the blowing and washing away of precious topsoil.
