Background

Apparently they are native to South America and related to the potato plant. These climbers produce clusters of flowers along their stems at regular intervals.  They can be grown against walls and fences and look very attractive at the back of an herbaceous border. Pruning – Thin out and spur back crowded growth in spring. The varieties I have also appear to be called: Solanum Jasminoides Album which are said to be vigorous semi-evergreen climbers producing clusters of white scented flowers, Planted in a sunny sheltered position in well drained soil.

Where I planted

Currently I have replanted in larger pots to those shown
