A very beautiful evergreen twining climber. Ogon Nishiki (Gold Brocade in English) is a recent introduction. A rather dainty, slower growing, compact form, with stunning evergreen foliage that emerges orange, slowly turning to gold and then white variegated. All colours are often seen on the same plant at once. In winter darker hues are also present. Flowers are cream and highly scented, produced, if you are lucky, from June to August. Can be used as a climber, ground cover or can easily be grown in a pot or other container. Wherever you plant it as a climber, it will need something to grow up! When growing in a pot or other container. Use a good quality John Innes compost as this plant will be there a long time and peaty types of compost eventually degrade and become too packed and choke the roots. Ensure you feed regularly as a hungry plant is a poor performer. We recommend Osmoscote pro 12-14 month applied in the late spring. One application gives all the nutrients the plant requires for the whole year. John Innes is a soils based compost. Ensure the location protects this plant from harsh winds which it cannot tolerate. A truly lovely new intrduction.
