Large, nodding, creamy-white flowers appear from winter to early spring and are followed by attractive seedheads. This charming evergreen climber is ideal for training around a doorway in a sunny, south or west facing, sheltered location, where the delicately scented blooms can be appreciated. Also suitable for growing in a container. Looking at its best in autumn, winter and spring, ‘Jingle Bells’ can have a natural dormant period in summer where the leaves sometimes go brown.

  • Garden care:
    Choose a sunny spot, away from prevailing winds.No routine pruning is necessary. If the spread of the plant needs to be restricted prune immediately after flowering, cutting back overlong shoots to healthy buds. Apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant in early spring. During the dormant period, be careful not to overwater (they're used to being dry).
    • Humans: Skin irritant; Pets: Harmful if eaten
