Description

The Sweet Tea Vine is a vigorous ground cover plant, which is ideal for a shady corner of the garden. The foliage is pretty, palmate and glossy, and joined by small, pale yellow flowers in summer, followed by black fruits.

Gynostemma pentaphyllum is borderline hardy, so should be planted into large patio containers, or planted in a sheltered corner. The exotic foliage makes an excellent summer display, and would be ideal for quick-growing screening or wall-covering. Height and Spread: up to 4m (13').

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Plant Sweet Tea Vine in any moist, but well drained soil, in dappled shade. When growing on containers, use a soil-based potting mix such as John Innes No. 3. Plants are tender, so will need some winter protection if you intend to grow them as a perennial.
More Info
Gynostemma plants can be quite short-lived, however they may be overwintered in a frost free position, and should be cut back to the base each spring.
