Description: Although a climbing perennial this is more often grown as a half-hardy annual in the UK. With dense, feathery foliage this plant produces small white flowers in summer which fade to unusual, balloon shaped seedpods. Great plant for covering trellis, creating a screen or twinning through shrubs. 

Care: Will require support for climbing stems. It may overwinter in milder areas, but in colder regions protection may be required from the frost.
