Dregea are evergreen climber shrubs, originating from Southern Asia, Africa and China. They are laden with panicles of highly scented, star-shaped blooms that flower prolifically from June through to September. These blooms are often followed by bean-like seed pods and are held upon an abundance of large, heart-shaped foliage. They make a great addition to a wall side border in a courtyard, cottage or informal garden setting. Most plants will grow to an approximate height and spread of 3m (10’).
Dregea are best planted in well-drained soil of chalk, sand or loam within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. Ideally, Dregea should be positioned in a warm and sheltered site, preferably in full sun or part shade. If grown against a wall or fence, you should encourage young shoots to twine, by attaching them to supports until they fully take hold.
You should prune during the spring by removing dead, damaged or diseased wood. As these plants are climbers, some may require trellis or wire supports if grown against walls or fences. Water well during periods of drought but sparingly during the winter months as this will cause the roots to rot.
