An attractive woody, evergreen climber with rich, dark green leaves which turn bronze in winter. Clusters of highly fragrant, pure white flowers are produced from mid- to late summer. It is best grown against a warm, sunny wall in milder areas or in a greenhouse or conservatory in areas prone to severe frosts.
- 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 frost-free spot in winter.
“Excellent for introducing scented glamour into courtyards, city gardens or roof terraces and in warm sunny borders at the foot of a sheltered south-facing wall”
Lucy Summers - Greenfingers Guides
“A slow climber for a warm wall - with high-gloss, dark-green leaves supporting clusters of evening-fragrant, clear-white tubular flowers - gloriously luminous and sensuous on a summer’s evening”
Val Bourne - Garden Writer
