What happens if this is grown without high support, ie a low wall but there is a large shrub/tree just in front of the wall which is not evergreen.Will it use that tree for support? Does it have to be tied on?

On plant Solanum crispum



It's not a climber, Carol - more of a free-standing but floppy large shrub. I have mine tied onto wires against a wall. Yes, I'm sure it will flop over the tree. I wouldn't have thought you'd need to tie it on, unless you see it flopping where you don't want it to - then you could.
