  • Rate of growth: average

    A new and attractive woody, evergreen climber with rich, dark green leaves which often turn bronze in winter. Unlike its well established and much-loved relative, its flowers are yellow, but they still have the same sweet perfume. These appear in clusers over along period from summer to autumn. Happiest grown against a warm, sunny wall in milder areas, it is said to be hardy to -10C, but in areas prone to severe frosts it will need winter protection.

  • Garden care: After flowering has finished prune back to fit the available space. In frost prone areas, grow in pots of loam-based potting compost, such as John Innes No2 and move to a sheltered spot in winter.

      A:

      Hello there
      Yes this lovely climber is suitable for a warm sunny, west facing wall in milder areas. It is classed as 'frost hardy' so will need some protection from cold weather and frosts.
      Hope this helps
