ยป Considered a rare species, this climbing plant has broad, bright green leaves, and in Spring and early Summer produces large clusters of read pea-flowers flecked with yellow. A vigorous climber for fences and walls, especially suited to coastal conditions. Useful groundcover for embankments. Suitable for hanging baskets and pots. Attracts nectar feeding birds. Grow in an open, sunny position in moist, well-drained soil. Tolerates coastal conditions and light frost. Responds well to pruning. Cultivate soil before planting. Dig hole twice the width of the container. Remove plant from container and place into the hole so the soil level is the same as the surrounding ground. Fill hole firmly and water in well even if the soil is moist. Good for coastal conditions. Supplier: Kuranga Native Nursery.
