Solanum laxum ‘Album’
You can treat this climber like a fuchsia by cutting the stringy growth hard back to strong stems in the spring. This will keep it in check and encourage new growth on which the flowers are produced. The clear-white flowers are held in lax clusters and are reminiscent of potato flowers. They are produced well into the winter – and even through the winter in the mildest districts. You can grow it up a wall or it also does very well trained up a chestnut pole in borders from where its rangy new growth can drape over and through neighbouring plants. AGM.
