This type, called “Light Wintercreeper” by FassadenGrün, is one of the older varieties, which has been known in Japan since about 1870. It scores with its bright colour and that is why we offer it in our Range. In spring and summer the leaves are light green, turning to a mid-green in autumn and winter. It is particularly suitable for bright and colourful façades, though positions in full sun (south walls without any shade) are to be avoided. The foliage is less dense than in the “Dark Wintercreeper”, but just as reliably evergreen. This type responds well to rigorous pruning, hence it lends itself well for formal training / topiary art, and can then grow very old and cover many square metres. If the plant is trained on a wire rope or trellis well away from the wall, it hardly develops any aerial rootlets. You can find an example in the Blog. Refer to General Information for location, pruning, suitable cable systems etc. Available in 3 sizes, each larger size has about an additional year's growth.
