Tender shrub with masses of tubular orange flowers throughout the summer. It has a scrambling habit so needs to be tied to a support. In a large conservatory it can be used as ground cover if left to sprawl across the ground. Feed monthly in summer with a balanced liquid fertiliser. Pruning: If wall trained shorten side shoots to 4 buds in early spring. Otherwise tidy up after flowering. This is quite often mistaken for being a hardy shrub but it must be kept frost free over winter at a minimum of 5C
