Caring for Chiku

  • 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.

Typical uses of Chiku

Special features: Excellent ground cover for areas where invasive spread is either desirable or acceptable or where appropriate barriers have been installed. A good plant for erosion control on slopes and banks. Leave undisturbed to roam in woodland gardens.

Ornamental use: The plant is used for ornamental purpose.
