Asarina scandens 'Mystic Rose'

I love the asarinas which climb up and cascade down, so they are brilliant for covering walls and fences and as an abundant softener for containers.

Description

I love the asarinas which climb up and cascade down, so they are brilliant for covering walls and fences and as an abundant softener for containers and summer pots flowing down the sides. This one is a rich purple-pink.

Please note, illustrated packets are being introduced gradually over the coming months, availability may vary.

Care Tips

Grow as an annual or move potted plants into a frost free place over winter if you want to keep them for the following year.
