1st. thing I saw were the seedpods.Have never seen such profusion.
No interactions present.
We grow this in our garden at home. You can treat it as a foliage plant and cut it back to ground level every year to get very large exotic foliage.
Can be propagated by root-cuttings , probably also by digging up suckers. A several very good examples to be seen in and around the precincts of Norwich Cathedral.
a sucker & so does our neighbour.See our previous obs.(The Clematis from next door looked fantastic this year,our neighbour tied it in when he was garden sitting last year.)They are tolerant of our ailing tree & it losing small dead bits that we cannot reach.We have one large sucker which will get damaged when we have to get the tree surgeons in & then there will be more suckers esp.near next doors stream.Did not have time to do Norwich sadly when we on hol. up there but will put that on the list.The ones on Southampton seafront look nearly as bad as ours but not quite as tall.
