ยป A vigorous climber with twining stems carrying a mass of pea-shaped red flowers from Winter to Summer. The violet-purple or black flowers have a greenish-yellow blotch. Ideal for covering large areas such as embankments and fences. Not recommended for small areas. Grow in a sunny position in well-drained soil. Tolerates coastal conditions, dappled shade, light frosts and drought. Prune after flowering to maintain compact growth. 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.
