I think .

I found a lovely nursery (in Penge if anyone is down that way ) www.alexandranurseries.co.uk/ and bought a plant .

I asked the name but didn't write it down ,so of course I can't remember it .

It's a trailing plant ,bought for containers in shade ,evergreen ,reddish brown wire like stems with tiny dark green oval leaves .Plant is small ,maybe 4" high .

And I don't have a phone that takes pictures ( or a brain ,it seems ) .

Anyone know what it's name is ?

Muehlenbeckia complexa aka Australian maidenhair vine - www.rhs.org.uk/Plants/11221/Muehlenbeckia-complexa/Details quite an odd plant! I saw quite a large "hedge" of it in Guernsey years ago, quite intriguing!

But now I know the name it seems to be decidious ,which is a shame ...
