Description

Super fragrant and lovely scrambling over arches, pergolas, trellis or trees. The yellow flowers turn purple and red as they mature, followed by berries in autumn. Plant it somewhere close to a door or seating area to get the most of the scent.

Care Tips

Cut back established plants after flowering if they outgrow the available space, removing up to a third of the flowering shoots. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted compost or manure around the base of the plant in spring or autumn.
