I’m interested in growing Schisandra rubriflora on a north facing, red brick wall. Does anyone have any experience of possible disadvantages please

For example are the flowers very visible?



I've never grown this, but looking at images, it looks like it would look better and more noticeable against a pale wall when in flower than a red brick one. But after 4 or 5 years it probably won't matter, because it'll be quite dense, with a height and spread of 8-12 metres x 2.5-4 metres and you probably won't be able to see the wall anyway.

this is a good link from the RHS

it gives you horticultural advice and details of the flower size [3cm].
