- Position: full sun
- Soil: fertile, moist but well drained
- Rate of growth: fast
- Flowering period: June to September
- Hardiness: tender (will need winter protection)
Producing an abundance of flowers over several months, this fast growing climber can be grown in a pot, hanging basket or sunny border. Strictly speaking it is a tender perennial, but if you want to over-winter it, you will need to do so in a warm conservatory or greenhouse. Otherwise treat it as an annual and replace it every year - it's a very good investment!
- Garden care: Keep under glass where temperatures dip below 5C, only moving outside after the frosts have passed. A twining climber, it will need support, and it should be watered freely when in growth - and apply a balanced liquid fertiliser monthly.
