Swedish ivy (Plectranthus australis) is also known as creeping charlie, but not to be confused with the creeping charlie weed. It is favoured for its beautiful trailing habit. Leaves on a growing Swedish ivy plant are glossy with scalloped edges, and tubular mauve-to-white flowers appear in spring throughout summer. The easy care of Swedish ivy houseplants make them great for even the most novice of gardeners.
Swedish ivy does best in a light and loamy potting mix with some perlite mixed in to help with drainage. The plant will thrive in a location that receives bright, indirect light all year long. Given these conditions, this plant will grow very rapidly with little Swedish ivy care or maintenance being necessary.
Care of Creeping Charlie involves keeping a constant room temperature between 16-24 C year round. Water the ivy once a week and be sure to allow the soil to dry out slightly between waterings. Good drainage is necessary, so do not let the ivy sit in water.
Pinch off vine tips after flowering to keep the plant from becoming too leggy. Repot Swedish ivy every two or three years.
