‘Princess Diana’ is a profuse summer bloomer, June to September. It’s tulip-shaped, deep pink flowers (to 2.5” long) with paler pink margins, and cream and maroon stamens are striking. A classic vine for climbing fences, walls and arbours, it also exceptional as a rambling ground cover in beds and borders. Wonderful in a container for the small garden. Resistant to deer, and tolerant of Black Walnut. Pruning Group: 3.
Group 1 – Flowers only on old wood (previous year). Prune after spring flowering.
