Ever popular this plant is smothered in showy clusters of pure white sweet pea-like flowers from June to September among grey-green leaves. A vigorous perennial climber it looks lovely scrambling over a sunny wall or through a hedge or evergreen shrub although initially it needs to be tied into supports. Unlike the annual sweet pea it has no fragrance.

  • Garden care: Incorporate lots of well-rotted organic matter in the planting hole. Pinch out the shoot tips to encourage bushy growth and tie in new shoots to a support. Cut back the plant to ground level in early spring.
