Solid, dense clusters of sizeable, milky white, golden-eyed flowers appear on vigorous climbing stems all summer and into autumn. In autumn attractive silky seed heads appear. This rarely-seen but immensely valuable gem from China, will add value and colour by covering any boring old evergreen shrub or fence.
Sow seeds at any time onto a good soil-based compost covering seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. We recommend germinating at 15 to 20 degrees C. Germination may be very slow, perhaps 2-3 months, or sometimes much longer, and these seeds may sometimes wait for spring before emerging. Grow on individual seedlings in 3 inch pots before finally planting with climbing support in a well-drained spot or very large pot.
