This, set against the lime green of the middle leaf will add stunning colour to any area you place it and will look brilliant in a dark container.

Not only does ‘Elegantissimus Aureus’ make an attractive border to any outdoor space, it also provides a luxurious sense of privacy, screening out any unwanted sites or sounds.

Primrose instant climbing plants are provided fully covering the trellis for instant impact when added to your garden.

Caring and Maintenance

Water regularly until roots are well established. Trim annually from mid to late summer. Apply some fertilizer in spring in order to promote healthy growth. Optionally, mulch in spring.


  • Planting Distance: Each trellis is 160cm wide. You can plant so touching if planting multiple, it may be best to leave 5/10 cm gap for the plant to grow around the edge.

Suited to almost all well-drained soils in a position with at least some sun.

If planting in the ground:

Before planting your trellis, clean up all wandering weeds and keep a clean ring around the trellis base. Water well during the first year until well established.

Dig a hole 2X the width of the rootball and deep enough for the root collar to sit just above the top of the hole when in position. Make sure to position so that the trellis is aligned as you desire.

Once positioned, backfill with soil and firm every few shovels to ensure there are no air gaps. Once filled, check alignment of the trellis and then give a generous watering.

If planting in a container:

Fill container with soil mix to the desired level. Then follow the steps above. You will not need to dig a hole quite so wide as you are planting into fresh soil.
