    Straw Vines - Mitchella repens

    Straw Vine, or Mitchella repens is a non-climbing vine perennial. This perennial is found from Eastern Canada to Florida, Texas, and Guatemala. It is found growing in wooded areas, along stream banks, and along sandy hills. Straw Vine does best in zones three to eight. This is a smaller plant, growing a half a foot high with the maximum spread of one foot per plant. Straw Vine likes rich, medium moisture soil along with full shade for coverage. The plant has dark green, oval, glossy leaves that are approximately a half an inch long and the flowers are tubular-shaped, white or light pink in color, and fragrant. Straw Vine has a long, creeping stem with a pair of leaves every few centimeters, and they form colonies once they become established. These flowers bloom from May until July and bloom in pairs. This perennial also develops red berries after the flowers bloom in July and they stay around all through the winter. Straw Vine is a favorite of landscapers and gardeners alike because it makes an excellent ground cover in shade gardens, excellent groundcover under shrubs or around tree bases, and borders for shaded rock gardens. This is not an aggressive plant and will not take over an area and push other plants out, preferring to stay in the area its planted. This perennial is a well-known bird attractant, as well as having the added benefit of not having any major disease or insect problems. This plant grows at a medium speed, taking some time to get properly established but growing at a decent rate after it does establish itself. Straw Vine is easy to care for plant that is a favorite of novice gardeners. These unique perennials are shipped to the consumer in their bare root form, so they arrive in top notch condition.
