Solanum laxum ‘Al­bum’

Gardens Illustrated Magazine - - Dig In Plantsman’s Favourites -

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.
