- Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
- Rate of growth: average
- Flowering period: May to August

Gorgeous single white flowers which are offset by large, domed bosses of deep purple stamens. The flowers appear in late spring or summer amongst the mid-green, deciduous (or sometimes semi-evergreen) foliage. An excellent climber for a container or to weave up and through a wall shrub.
- Garden care: Remove dead and damaged stems before growth begins in early spring, cutting all remaining stems back to where strong buds are visible. Apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant in early spring.
