Description

Family Apocynaceae
Originating from Korea and Japan.

  • Fast-growing twining evergreen climber with leaves that turn red in winter.
  • Deliciously scented pink star-shaped flowers appear in profusion in summer.
  • Easy to grow in sun or part shade and in pots.

Masses of small glossy evergreen leaves densely clothe the vigorously growing slender stems of this twining climber, which can grow over any supporting structure or even along the ground, forming a dense ground cover. If left unsupported, its stems will simply scramble along the ground and can be easily trimmed to encourage them to grow in the desired spot, eventually creating a dense bushy carpet. It is equally happy to cascade over the wall of a raised bed or planter.

In winter, the multitude of small leaves turns a deep blood-red color, adding yet another dimension to its seasonal display. Such an adaptable and ornamental species is indispensable in creating a garden that engages all the senses, fulfilling various roles in planting compositions, both vertically and horizontally.

With smaller leaves than the more common T. jasminoides, this species appears to be a little faster growing and will soon develop a framework of stems that can wrap around themselves, a pergola, trellis, or tree, allowing the powerful scent of the star-shaped flowers to waft far from the plant. The delightful rich, clear rose pink flowers appear over a long season from mid-summer to early autumn in great profusion.

Easy to grow in any soil in part shade or full sun. Height and spread after 5-10 years 6m x 6m.
