Description

Vines are beautiful cascading over arches, trellis and walls, and they make a romantic addition to any vase. Quick-growing and to a degree, cut-and-come-again, making an invaluable trailer for a magnificent vase of pale-coloured lilies, cosmos and dahlias.

Care Tips

Provide support for this fast-growing vine. It works well as a covering for walls or cascading over a garden trellis or pergola, and is quick-growing so good for picking. Caution: Wear gloves when handling as it may cause a skin irritation.
