Coral creeper is a creeping or scrambling shrubby plant, that is an emerging weed of urban bushland, riparian vegetation, Also known as creeping barleria, red barleria and coral bells,
Botanical Name - Barleria repens
Common Name - Coral creeper
A creeping or scrambling shrubby plant usually less than 70 cm tall. However, when growing in the forest understorey it scrambles over nearby shrubs and can occasionally climb up to 2m in height. The younger stems are green and sparsely hairy, while older stems may become somewhat woody in nature. These stems tend to produce roots where they touch the ground, enabling this plant to spread quite quickly. The shiny, dark green leaves have entire margins and are borne in pairs along the stems with good vibrant pink flowers.
