i'm looking for a climber i nearly bought at a nursery, now regretting i didn't!.. it had deep green waxy leaves with deep red flowers, can't remember the name but it was love at 1st sight!....any ideas?



Climbers that spring to mind from your description are akebia, berberidopsis, campsis, schisandra or tropaeolum speciosum. Try Goggle to find a picture of each of them. Was it one of those?

Rule out the Tropaeolum - its leaves aren't waxy. I wouldn't call the Akebia's leaves waxy, either??
