Rarely offered, this US native produces masses of pale mauve - pink flowers very late in the year, a much appreciated source of food for bees and butterflies. Rather than being a true climber, it scrambles up through other shrubs, and can get to 10 feet. It needs a sunny, warm spot in well-drained soil. Cut off any dead growth in spring, 9 cm pots.
