Pandorea is a woody evergreen climber. It is the ideal climber to decorate walls, hedges and trellises in prominent places, because the flowers are showy and the plant is evergreen and remains neat.
How to harvest Pandorea
Trim lightly after flower to keep the plant neat and to prevent it from escaping to other plants or structures. Prun out some of the lateral stems to stop it from becoming too heavy or dense.
How to propagate Pandorea
Sow seed in spring in moist soil.
Layer in spring time by placing a shoot on the ground and place a bit of soil and rock on it. Roots will grow from nodes underneath the soil. Remove the shoot with roots in following winter.
Root green-wood cuttings in summer with bottom heat.
