A fast-growing climber, this lovely plant is seen by many as a traditional garden climber, often seen growing up a trellis, or trailing over walls and fences. The trumpet-shaped flowers are creamy white, pink or light yellow, and give off an unmistakable sweet scent, most noticeably late in the evening and at night. Flowers are followed by bunches of red berries, which ripen in Autumn and are often eaten by wild birds during the winter months.
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.
