Climber ID'd as Fallopia baldschuanica by Oron Peri
« on: January 13, 2017, 02:34:49 AM »
Any ideas what it is? Would it be good for mediterranean type climates? I took a cutting but by the time I got it back to rome it was looking a little worse for wear. The photos were taken at night on an Ipod using flash so not perfect, I'm afraid.

All advice gratefully received, as always. :)

I have a small garden in Rome, Italy. Some open soil, some concrete, some paved. Temperatures in winter occasionally down to 0C. Summer temperatures up to 40C in the shade. There are never watering restrictions but, of course, there is little natural water for much of June, July and August.

Thanks a lot Oron. Good to hear that it will grow here. Now all I have to do is get the cutting to root. It is indoors during our current very cold spell.
