Originating from New Zealand
A scrambling shrub, usually grown as a climber, evergreen in mild winters, with dark green leaves comprising up to 25 narrow leaflets. It lives up to its common name, ‘Glory pea’ producing a spectacular exotic display of dark rose pink, large pea-like, waxy flowers in late spring/summer. These are produced in pendant clusters and resemble, as it’s other common names suggest, lobster claws or parrots beaks.
Clianthus prefers the shelter of a warm wall, especially in colder parts of the UK. In severe winters, it may be cut back to ground level by frost but usually re-appears in spring. Alternatively grow in a conservatory in gritty compost in bright light.
It is advisable to mulch the roots well in autumn and protect the new shoots from slugs in spring. Grow in well-drained soil in sun.
