Planting And Care
plant care is not difficult but does require vigilance.
The vines need to be trained early when they are young.

Fertilize the plant in spring just before new growth appears.
Pinch off the tips of the vines in the second year to promote branching which will fill the trellis with bushy growth.
Senecio Vitalis Blue Care
