Cymbalaria aequitriloba Mini Kenilworth Ivy



Cymbalaria aequitriloba, or Mini Kenilworth Ivy, is a very delicate-looking plant with tiny, scalloped leaves and lots of tiny, lilac blue flowers in May and sporadically thereafter. The trailing runners of Cymbalaria aequitriloba form a solid mat, creating a nice filler in shady areas. It is mostly evergreen, except in extra cold weather.

Cymbalaria aequitriloba is best in light shade and moist, well-drained soils, but tolerates part sun with sufficient moisture. Remove any leaf litter from this plant in fall to maintain its vigor. This Cymbalaria will tolerate very light foot traffic. Space on 12" centers.

We ship via UPS & USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
