Popular vine with eye-catching 2.5 cm blooms in colours of cream, lemon, apricot and orange. An excellent plant for hanging baskets or for any climbing plant area.

Seed is usually best sown in spring or autumn in temperate climates, avoid the coldest and hottest months of the year. The optimum germination temperature for germination of this genus is around 18-22°C

  1. Place the seed in a container and pour in warm water and soak overnight.
  2. The swollen seed can then be sown, re-treat seeds that have not swollen.
  3. Sow 6mm deep.
  4. Place in a warm shaded or semi shaded position to avoid dying out.
  5. The growing medium should be well draining but should remain damp between watering. Keep moist but not too wet as the seed may rot. Do not let the growing mix completely dry out.
  6. Germination should occur in 10-21 days @ 18-22C

General note: Seeds of many species are dormant and require specific conditions or pre-treatment for germination.
Do not be too hasty to discard seed that does not germinate, seeds will often lay dormant until the conditions are similar to their natural requirements for germination to occur. Containers put to one side will often surprise long after they were discarded.

Prefers a well-drained soil in an open sunny position.
