P. An evergreen climber only suited to warmcultivation in this country. The very fragrant, tubular, white are very long-lasting when cut and appear all summer. They were formerly widely grown for wreaths and table decoration. Elvaston is a good variety, rather more compact than the type. Grow in turfy loam, sand and peat and then cut out old wood in winter. A prepared bed is desirable for this plant as it is a rampant grower and will soon cover a large area of the greenhouse and is best trained to a trellis below the roof. Aim at a minimum winter temperature of 55 degrees F., 65 degrees F. at other seasons of the year — and keep fairly dry in winter. In summer water freely. Increase by side shoots 3 in. long in spring and rooted in a warm propagating case. Choose shoots from previous year’s wood.
