‘Apple Blossom’

Hundreds vanilla-scented blooms cover this evergreen, fast-growing vine! Rosy buds burst into an abundance of bee and butterfly attracting, delicate pale pink 2.5” blooms all thru Springtime. The twining tendrils rapidly grow to 15’ with beautiful two-toned foliage as the coppery new growth matures into lush emerald leaves. It’s the best way I can think of to cover an unsightly fence or wall, and it provides a stunning backdrop for our beloved Buddlejas (also pollinator magnets). Will do best in well-drained soil - water regularly thru the first growing season to give it a good start, after which it will be easy-as-pie to care for: just a little mulch in early Spring, and a bit of pruning when the blooms finish will pay off handsomely.
