It is grown as an ornamental climber that makes a dazzling spectacle when in full flower. An arbor, very sturdy chain link, fence, an espalier or roofline make great places for it to climb up. It may also be grown as a lush ground cover or hillside stabilizer. Use climbers to cover or soften buildings, pergolas, archways and fences. Train up a post or tripod to add a third dimension to a border. With support, they may be also used as a substitute for hedges.
