Description

Tripterygium genus. This genus consists of 2 species of deciduous scrambling climbers, with leaves which are pointed and elliptical. The greenish white flowers are borne in loose panicles in early summer. They are frost hardy and will grow in any fertile, well drained soil in full sun or light shade. You should water freely while in full growth and less in low temperatures. Give the stems a little support and thin out the crowded stems in the winter or early spring. Propagation is by seeds when ripe or in the spring or by semi-ripe cuttings in the summer.
