A vigorous climbing form of this wonderful pioneer plant with light green leaves and lavender tinged white flowers. The very subtle mauve flowers are sensational. This plant makes a great ground cover but will also climb vigorously if given something to support it. Will cover 3 to 4 metres in area unpruned, but can also be trimmed to size. Good in sun to light shade. Will grow in most soil types as long as they get good drainage.

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.
