This rambling native perennial grows as a medium twining shrub, or as a climber if provided support. Flowers abundantly from late Summer to early Winter, producing extravagant displays of small white or pale blue flowers clustered along the stems. The dark green foliage and twining habit make it a great plant for screening, and it performs very well as a garden and landscape plant both as a climber or as a mid-sized shrub if grown without support. Water regularly to encourage prolific flowering.

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT
Once you have found the plant that looks right for you, the next step is where to buy it.
Most nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may not always have the plant that you are searching for in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you if you request it.
Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you have planned on, they can often suggest alternatives that will also work well for you.
