Description

Whether it’s clematis, honeysuckle, or annual cobaea, thunbergia and rhodochiton, I’m obsessed by climbers and the height and abundance they add to a garden.

Here’s a perennial climber to grow from seed and the marvellous thing about this one, is it thrives in shade, with delicate, teardrop flowers all summer long.

Care Tips

Provide support such as a trellis or wires attached to a fence or wall, for the tendrils to cling to as it grows. Keep well-watered during dry spells. Dislikes root disturbance once established. Caution: Contact with foliage may aggravate skin.
