Description:

An easy-care solution for covering unsightly fences. Vigorous growing, dense branches cling firmly to any surface. A handsome choice for climbing walls, pillars, arbors and fences. Small, leathery, dark green leaves mature into large, thick leaves; prune the mature foliage to promote new juvenile growth. Evergreen.

Design Ideas: The very best self-clinging vine for covering sheltered fences and walls. Plant in small vine pocket openings in paving to grow up an arbor. Plant in shaded entryways, under covered patio and on protected fences and freestanding walls. This vine is also valued for training over wire topiary forms. Needs to be cut back occasionally to control spread and to encourage growth of attractive juvenile foliage.

Provide enriched, well-drained soil; does not tolerate soggy, poorly drained soils. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system; reduce frequency, once established. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer. Space plants 2 to 3 ft. apart. Prune semi-annually to control size.
