Attractive bronzed foliage contrasts beautifully with the blooms to give a spectacular show year on year. Marjorie is exceptionally disease resistant and very hardy.

Great for your garden:
Marjorie will perform best with her roots in deep, moist soil. She is a vigorous climber, quickly smothering a wall or pergola with attractive bronze foliage, and prefers full sun, but will tolerate part shade in a south or south-westerly aspect.
Give her a strong supporting structure to climb up or tree to ramble through and enjoy the show each spring.
