Grower Notes

This needs to be kept frost-free in good light but not strong midday sun. In spring cut away any unwanted or dead branches. Growing from a vigourous tuberous rootstock, it will eventually fill a large pot, and looks good trained against a conservatory wall. It is now a weed in some parts of Australia, but is unlikely to cause a problem in the UK due to its sensitivity to frost.
