With its trailing purple flowers, Coral Creeper makes a beautiful blooming accent in hanging baskets. Its versatility and easy care make it a great choice for gardens and containers.

How to Grow

Grow Coral Creeper in full sun to partial shade. Keep soil consistently moist but not saturated. Pinch back tips to promote bushiness. Deadhead spent blooms to encourage new flowers. Bring containers indoors before frost.

Care Tips

Water when the top few inches of soil become dry. Fertilize monthly with a balanced liquid fertilizer during the growing season. Prune lightly in early spring to shape and invigorate growth.


Coral Creeper shines trailing from hanging baskets, window boxes, and container gardens. It also adds long-lasting color to garden beds, borders, and trellises with its cascading purple blooms.

Planting Tips

Space 18-24 inches apart in well-draining soil. Dig a hole twice the container width and backfill with soil. Water thoroughly after planting. For containers use a quality potting mix.


Pinch back tips regularly to encourage bushy growth. Prune annually to shape in early spring. Repot in a larger container when rootbound. Remove dead growth as needed.

Pests & Diseases

Watch for aphids, whiteflies, and spider mites. Improve air circulation. Control pests with neem oil or insecticidal soap sprays. Prevent fungal issues by avoiding wet foliage.
