Do not be misled by the miniature classification; this feisty little climber spreads up to 3m, and flowers from top to bottom. It insures a wall if trained on a trellis or smothers an archway or pillar with flowers. It flowers more thickly than bigger Climbers and is very rewarding.

50Water two or more times a week.
51In hot, dry weather watch out for red spider and spray the undersides of the leaves with a double dose of Ludwig’s Insect Spray.
52Should there be a rainy spell, spray with Chronos and Ludwig’s Insect Spray to prevent black spot and to repel pests.
