THIS stunning climber, Eccremocarpus
scaber, has just about finished its 2011 display but will almost certainly have set huge amounts of seed ready for next year.
Other candidates are the Chilean glory flower, Eccremocarpus
scaber reaching 10ft with orange flowers all summer, and the lemon-scented verbena, Aloysia triphylla that leaves the smell of lemon when crushed but needs winter protection.
The Chilean glory vine, Eccremocarpus
scaber, is a fast-scrambling beauty which shoots upwards for a few feet then branches and spreads, sometimes stretching 5m (16ft) in a long growing season.
In a sunny, sheltered spot, plant out half-hardy climbers such as ipomoea (morning glory), cobaea scandens (cup and saucer plant) and eccremocarpus
scaber (Chilean glory vine).
Even more exotic is the Chilean Glory Vine, Eccremocarpus
A HALF-HARDY climber which is usually grown as a readily self- seeding annual, Eccremocarpus
scaber rapidly climbs to 3m (10ft).
2 In my article on climbers on February 6 I highlighted a wonderful climber called Eccremocarpus
A bit more exotic in both name and flower is the Chilean Glory Vine, Eccremocarpus
The Chilean Glory Vine, Eccremocarpus
scaber, has exotic-looking waxy flowers in hot orange and red.
scaber, the Chilean glory flower, now in a number of different colours, provide a spectacular show of orange and red tubular flowers from late spring until after the first frosts of autumn - its twining leaf tendrils give it the ability to scramble across fences, shrubs and trees, adding highlights of colour wherever it travels.
KNOWN to specialists as Eccremocarpus
, this is great for adding colour to mature climbers and shrubs.
The easy canary creeper, tropeolum perigrinum, with flowers like little yellow fans, would be good or eccremocarpus
scaber, the Chilean Glory Vine, with waxy tubular flowers of orange rimmed with yellow.
