An attractive, low growing perennial cultivar of wiry shoots. Long-blooming from August till October. Particularly suitable for growing in small gardens, along paths.


WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE: Flowers small, 1-2 cm across, light-yellow, of hyacinth shape set in leaf axils, consisting of 4 curling outwards, light-pink sepals brightened in the middle by yellow stamens. Blooms from August till October. Shoots erect, wiry.

HOW IT GROWS: A perennial, primitive climber, does not attach itself to supports but it can lean on them. Slow-growing, reaching 0.3-0.4 m.

WHERE TO PLANT: Prefers light sites and well-drained soils. Frost hardy (Zone 4˗9).

HOW TO PLANT AND MAINTAIN: Place the plant in a 30 x 30 x 30 cm hole of fertile soil with a couple of cm layer of drainage at the bottom, 1 cm deeper than it was before. Plant at least 30 cm from walls or other plants. In early spring prune the dead shoots just above the ground and the live ones 5-10 cm from the base. Cover the ground around the base with bark mulch, for winter protection pile it up to 10 cm. In April fertilize with Osmocote 5-6M, water abundantly during vegetative season.

HOW TO APPLY: Particularly recommended for growing in small gardens, along paths. Suitable for container cultivation.
