The Highlights

    • Eyecatching semi-evergreen marbled foliage
    • Clusters of sweet smelling ivory and gold blooms
    • Perfect for attracting bees and other wildlife
    • Trails and twists around an arbour seat or sunny wall
    • Leaves develop a blush-pink hue in Autumn
    • Please Note: Our climbers are pruned back each winter, and some during the summer, so you may find at certain times of year they do not cover the whole 90cm cane. This is intentional to ensure the best growth when you plant out
