This creeping plant is ideal for covering dull spots in your garden and replacing them with a blooming, eye-catching bush. Its flowers attract bees and healthy insects for your garden, making it a great companion for your flowerbed during the summer months. Know that it can quickly cover up a lot of space, which can be both a blessing and a curse, but choosing a fence or wall where it can crawl on will make you irreversibly befriend Fallopia baldschuanica.
Originally from Western China, this woody plant is now famous with many names: Russian Vine, Bukhara Fleeceflower, Chinese Fleecevine, Mile-A-Minute, or Silver Lace Vine. It spreads rapidly in the wild, but it is frequently used in landscaping for its long leaves and fragrant flower bouquets that can reach up to 6 inch (15 cm). The plant grows rapidly, its vines being able to reach up to 36 ft (11 m), so it is usually isolated from other plants in the garden.
