    A tender, trailing, evergreen perennial with branching, purple-flushed stems and fleshy, dark green leaves, dark purple beneath. Tiny white flowers are produced in clusters intermittently throughout the year. ‘Green Hill’ is a popular, easy-to-care-for indoor hanging basket plant for a brightly lit room or shaded conservatory - simply pinch out the tips of the trailing stems and it will get even bushier as it grows.

  • Home care: Make sure that it is in a bright spot but not in direct sun, with a constant average temperature no lower than 10°C in the winter. Watering is simple - water well in the growing season from spring to autumn, then reduce watering in the winter when the plant's growth has slowed down. You can mist the leaves occasionally in a hot summer. If you fancy more of these plants, then try and take some cuttings in the spring or autumn, by popping a tip of one of the trailing stems into some fresh compost, water and watch it grow.

    Please note: all our indoor hanging pots include drainage holes to prevent waterlogging. We recommend taking them down to water in the sink or on a saucer, and leaving them to drain before rehanging.
