A new cultivar of decorative, subtle, pale pink flowers gathered in long racemes. Recommended both for small and large gardens.
WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE: Flowers decorative, pale-pink, fragrant, gathered in very long bunches; appear in abundance in May. Flowering starts in the 2nd-3rd year after planting. Leaves pinnate, compound, consist of 9–15 leaflets, bright green in summer and yellow in autumn. Shoots winding anti-clockwise.
HOW IT GROWS: A climber of twining shoots. Strong growing, reaches 5–7 m height with annual growth rate of 1–3 m. Solid supports are required.
WHERE TO PLANT: Grows and flowers best in sunny, warm, sheltered sites. Soil should be moderately fertile, moderately moist, well-drained of neutral or slightly acidic pH. Not quite hardy (zone 6–8). It may freeze during harsh winters.
HOW TO PLANT AND MAINTAIN: Before planting immerse the plant container in water for 10-30 min. Place the root ball in a 40 x 40 x 40 cm hole with a 10 cm layer of well-rotten manure or compost, 5 cm deeper than it was before. Fill the hole with fertile soil. The plants should be spaced at least 30 cm from a wall or other plants. Cover the earth around the plant with bark mulch, fertilize from April and water generously in vegetation season. As winter insulation cover the plant base with mulch up to 10 cm. Horizontally trained shoots and hard pruning are beneficial for bloom development. In summer cut back above the 4th leaf. Repeat in spring above the 2nd-3rd bud.
HOW TO APPLY: Suitable for training along large and solid supports: arbours, pergolas and constructions supported by a wall. It may be trained to form a tree.
