    A popular sweetly scented climber smothered in clusters of highly fragrant white flowers from June to August and pretty fine foliage. This versatile deciduous climber appreciates a sheltered sunny well-drained site and can cope with dry conditions. Since it spreads quickly in all directions it's ideal for covering a large south or west-facing wall or an unsightly garden building. In small gardens it is best planted in a pot and trained up a trellis or wall.
  • Garden care: After flowering remove old and over-crowded shoots. Prune hard in autumn to keep it within bounds but be warned that flowering will be retarded the following year.
