Russian vine

In August and September this woody deciduous climber is literally smothered with panicles of tiny, funnel-shaped, pink-tinged white flowers. Ideal for covering an unsightly structure or wall in sun or partial shade, but plant with caution since it’s extremely fast-growing and can end up choking everything in its path!

  • Other features: heart-shaped, dark green leaves; one of the quickest growing climbing plants; the flowers are followed by small, pinkish-white fruits
