Admired plant

by Ciaran Burke


This is Asarina scandens, much admired by students on the home study course at one of the regular garden visits to National Botanic Gardens at Glasnevin in Dublin.

It is a tender perennial herbaceous climbing plant. It always self seeds into the old stone walls at the bots where in trails downwards. It can grow to 2 meters or more. In cold areas it makes an excellent conservatory plant. It is easy to grow from seed.
