Bloom Time Spring through Fall
Design Ideas A shrubby climber is the perfect plant for the back of mixed borders, particularly along fence lines where it may be trained up and over. Perhaps one of the best plants to sprawl as erosion control on banks and slopes needing soil coverage with evergreen foliage year around. With slight trimming this makes an elegant foundation plant that cloaks ugly footings and utilities. Adaptation to partial shade is a good opportunity for planting under spreading canopies of old trees on boulevard or backyard. Superior filler for tropical gardens and around pool areas where light green foliage is bright and lush.
