Winter flowering shrubs - Mediterranean Garden

The white linen like flowers of the Solanacae vine have persisted to the turn of the year. A sheltered position close to the front door has spared this climber from the harshest of the winter weather. The variegated leaves are a feature of  this specimen which helps brighten a shady corner of the house. As the plant climbs it benefits from discrete support wires which
the plant quickly clothes. The base of the vine can become a little bare over time so this is a plant that benefits from sympathetic underplanting.

  1. Hello Carol. Thank you for your comment. Your Spain blogs are so interesting and the transformation on the villa is amazing. I look forward to following the progress of your garden. Here's to fellow horticulturists!
