False bindweed (Calystegia hederacea 'Flore Pleno') grows best when planted in the ground. Prepare a large hole in quality, loose soil. Improve poor soil by mixing in some compost or cow manure fertiliser pellets. Plant the False bindweed at the appropriate depth in the hole. This means that the top of the roots should be just slightly below ground level. Fill the hole with soil and press firmly. Water immediately after planting. False bindweed grows and flourishes best in sandy, nutritious soil in the full sun.
False bindweed is a climbing plant
False bindweed (Calystegia hederacea 'Flore Pleno') is not only a fantastic ground cover plant, but the long, winding stems of this perennial can also climb. This requires a climbing support such as a trellis or fence. False bindweed also grows well in a flower pot or balcony planter.
Water your False bindweed regularly to prevent the soil around the roots from drying out. Remove the faded flowers of the False bindweed (Calystegia hederacea ‘Flore Pleno’) regularly to encourage a second flowering. For abundant flowering, we recommend adding plant food along with water regularly during the summer.
False bindweed in the winter
False bindweed is sensitive to severe frost. Protect during winter by covering with a layer of fallen leaves or conifer branches. It is preferable to store False bindweed in a pot in a frost-free area. Too much moisture in the winter is not well-tolerated. Prune a few of the older stems completely in spring.
False bindweed's second scientific name, hederacea, refers to its ivy-like leaves. The official name for ivy is Hedera. False bindweed makes an excellent ground cover. Calystegia hederacea 'Flore Pleno' originates from Japan and is also called Japanese Bindweed.
