Dregea sinensis

Wattakaka sinensis, Chinese Dregea

Half-hardy Shrub

Add a romantic touch to the garden with this seldom-seen climber from China. Dregea sinensis will make a welcome change to the usual climbers you see in our gardens. Exotic, heart-shaped foliage makes the perfect backdrop in early summer for clusters of sweet scented, creamy white blooms, speckled with red inside, later producing slender, paired seed pods. Hardy down to -7°C (19°F) , this glorious twining shrub will clothe a warm, sunny, sheltered wall or fence and the sweet, sugarsoaked perfume can fill the garden year on year. Height and spread: 4m (13ft).

Ideal For:
cottage gardens, scented gardens, exotic garden

Pot up Dregea plug plants and grow them on in warm frost free conditions until large enough to plant outside. Gradually acclimatise plants for to outdoor conditions for 7 – 10 days before planting in well drained soil in sun or partial shade. Dregea sinensis is hardy to -7°C ( 19°F) but will appreciate a sheltered position. Grow Drega against a wall or fence and encourage young shoots to twine by tieing them to supports until they take hold.
Prune Dregea in summer after flowering to suit the space available.
