Proven Accents® plants are great fillers and spillers for hanging baskets or containers. Big Leaf Creeping Vine has wonderfully dark stems that highlight small deep-green leaves. The leaves may look dainty, but they are tough as nails and can be a weed-suppressing ground cover in USDA growing zones 8-10. Muehlenbeckia complexa winds its way through and around other plants, giving any hanging basket a dynamic spiller element that brings the “wow” factor.

Colder growing zones can grow Big Leaf Creeping Vine as an annual in full or part sun locations. It will even tolerate a shadier, sheltered location such as a porch or screened deck. Virtually no disease or pest bothers Creeping Vine making it an easy-to-care-for plant that even new gardeners can grow successfully.

Proven Accents® Big Leaf Creeping Vine Care

Creeping Vine likes soil that has excellent drainage and average fertility. Ensure that there are plenty of drainage holes in the container. Heavy fertilizing is not required, although if Creeping Vine is planted with heavy feeder plants, it will tolerate well-balanced fertilizers, such as a diluted 5-5-5 liquid feed. Prune back stems in spring using a staggered cut to remove about 1/3 of new growth. This will help keep the plant compact and full. 

Big Leaf Creeping Vine can easily be overwintered indoors as a houseplant. Plants growing outdoors in growing zones 8-10 will be evergreen and tolerate heavy cutting back late in the winter if needed to control the spread. In the growing zones below 8, bring the plants indoors when nighttime temperatures reach 50 degrees F. Hang baskets where plants will receive bright indirect sun, such as in a south- or west-facing window. Watering can be reduced to once every 7-10 days during the winter. 

Proven Accents® Big Leaf Creeping Vine Spacing

The spread of Creeping Vine is large, but the overall growth is mounding and compact. The mature height is around 6 inches with a spread of 18-24 inches. If planting in a large group, space plants 18 inches apart on the plant center. A hanging basket with a 10-inch diameter is needed to grow one Creeping Vine.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
