The most rampant climber of our climate with densely twining stems up to 12m long (6m of annual growth). Small, green, ovate-lanceolate leaves fall off after frost. From August to October tiny white flowers are borne abundantly on short branchlets. Though tolerant of poor soils, it will grow much quicker in a fertile ground. Prefers sunny sites. It may freeze during severe winters.Due to its vigorous growth it's excellent for covering unsightly buildings and tall fences, but will grow equally well over arbors, pergolas and various supports of a strong construction. Quickly creates the desired effect and should be pruned back if becomes excessively expansive. Well suited for cultivation on a balcony.
