Akebia are best planted in a moist, fertile, well-drained soil of chalk, clay, sand or loam within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. They are best positioned in a sheltered area that receives full sun or part shade. Akebia are well suited to wall side borders in cottage or informal garden settings.

Akebia should be plated when all signs of frost have passed, positioning them in a site that will accommodate their size at maturity. Amend the soil with organic matter and mix thoroughly.
Prune once flowering has finished when you feel they have outgrown their existing space. During active growth, these climbers will need regular watering. Feed with an all-purpose fertiliser to encourage a profuse expanse of blooms and foliage with even better colour.
It is possible to propagate Akebia by seed in spring within a mild environment or by softwood cuttings in summer.
