Looks lovely, is it fragranced?

Unfortunately, no. It also needs a sheltered, S. or SW facing position.

oh wow thats lovely

It has been so vigorous that it has gone over the trellis and into the field at the back! It makes a change from brambles coming the other way, doesn't it!

That is spectacular, I planted one but unfortunately it failed, but the Cripum Glasnevin is doing well. This one is so dainty. Does it need fastening to the wall or free standing as the Glasnevin is?

Telme, I started by tying it onto the trellis, but it soon started to climb on its own. It scrambles up and winds itself round. Not a bit like S.crispum 'Glasnevin'!

I wish my camera could capture the whole plant - it has covered half the trellis - and is covered in flowers.

Unbelievable at this time of the year, such a beautiful flower.

Mine ceased blooming when I brought it indoors...it's trying to make up it's mind if it will rest or start blooming again!

HOW can you have one of these indoors, Lori? Doesn't it take over the house???? Mine must be about 10' wide by about 8' high - at least!

It is very vigorous outdoors...and has survived at least five winters indoors...I think the fact that it is potted has kept mine relatively under control...It was looking sad and neglected this spring..I wasn't sure it would make it...but put it in the shade porch and it started blooming immediately...it seems to like more humidity than is available to it indoors...I try misting..but it never says thankyou...just seems to hunker down to wait out the winter darkness!

I love the profusion of flowers...looks so spring-like...

Thanks Skippy - that's one of the charms of this climber - that it isn't a spring one! Imagine it still flowering its socks off in December! I find that amazing.

Lori, I reckon you are wise to grow it in a pot, I think your temps. probably go lower than ours. It certainly wouldn't appreciate them outside.
