Planting & Care
Plants do not thrive in Zones 9 to 10 without a period of refrigeration; they need a cold, dormant period. Select a site with soil that drains well. How can you tell? After a good rain, find a spot that is the first to dry out. Water trapped beneath the scales may rot the bulb, so a well-drained site is essential.

Sunlight: Full sun to part shade

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: Medium

Temprature: 3 °C

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:
  • Plants prefer a near-neutral pH range of 5.
  • 5–7.
  • 0.
  • A pH of 6.
  • 5 is just about right for most home gardens (slightly acidic to neutral).
  • An accurate soil test will tell you where your pH currently stands.
  • Acidic (sour) soil is counteracted by applying finely ground limestone, and alkaline (sweet) soil is treated with ground sulfur.


Care:
  • plant care is not difficult but does require vigilance.
  • The vines need to be trained early when they are young.
  • You may use plant ties or just weave them through trellis sections.
  • Fertilize the plant in spring just before new growth appears.
  • Pinch off the tips of the vines in the second year to promote branching which will fill the trellis with bushy growth.


Special Feature:
Interesting landscape specimen. Large hedge. Naturalized areas.
