CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION
This climbing sub-tropical shrub is one of the showest plants available. It climbs by means of its thorns which spring through to autumn develop into flowers. These flowers cover the plant with a mass of brilliant glowing rose-red colour for a long season. They attract butterflies and other insects. Planted on the sunny side of a fence, pergola, trellis or old tree. Great for creating a 'fedge', a hedge supported by a fence.
