Ercilla volubilis to be planted up the trellis


By Pamd

Ercilla volubilis to be planted up the trellis (Akebia quinata (Chocolate vine))

This is another buy from The Cornwall Spring Flower Show. It is an evergreen climber & should be scented with these fluffy pink flowers. Hoping it will be a background to some of my summer flowering Clematis.

This looks really lovely.
I wonder if it is generally available...
Have you planted it now, Pamd ?

I actually bought it from a Clematis grower, I think they do mail order, could give you the website if required? It's in "situ" of the trellis, so not quite planted, just waiting for my other half, Hameryllis, to dig me the hole. It's actually along our drive so I have to have holes made in the concrete.
By the way, I love your doggies run & garden, looks fab. PamD

Thanks, Pam.
Glad you like the photo of my back garden dog run area.
When Hameryllis gets out of that muddy pond, he'll dig the hole for you. Lol.

Yes, any further details of suppliers very welcome please.
Does it say anything interesting on the label ???
I found a place in Suffolk which seems to sell this plant...
Saw it on the internet...

You're not wrong about Ham, I'm always at least two jobs ahead of him. The label just says fragrant, everygreen, self clinging climber. Here is the website. I'm never sure if we're supposed to do this ----

I guess we could send these details by private "blue" messages... Lol.
