It's not really a climber TT .. you have to tie it in against the wall it will grow 10 ft tall ... my Aunt bought me this the last time she came to visit us from Australia ... I don't mean she bought it from Australia she bought it while she was here ... :o)

LOL... well I have only ever seen them against a wall so I suppose it is used as a climbing plant ... . I have two of them and another cutting in a pot !

I grew this in a previous garden as a climber on an arch, had to keep tying it in though as didn't seem too good at climbing ! It's a beautiful plant. Found out later that new owners removed the arch and put a trampoline in. : o ( (

It dosn't 'cling ' by its self does it Shirly , we put ringles on the wall to tie the stems to ... what a shame yours was taken out with the arch ... I suppose children have to play somewhere ....
