BILLARDIERA

Commonly known as Appleberry

Genus of 8 species of evergreen, twining, perennial climbers from forest margins and scrubby areas of temperate to sub-tropical Australia.

The blueberry or apple berry provides a touch of the exotic with its vividly coloured fruit, quite large in comparison with the slender vine.

  • Evergreen
  • Climber
    Some of these climbing plants will need trellis or wire supports if grown on walls or fences. Other grow aerial roots and are self-clinging
  • Will grow outside in milder locations
    This could include plants which would survive happily in a greenhouse or conservatory if not in a mild location. If you have a sheltered spot in your garden then it may do well here.
    Lime-free ericaceous potting compost and filtered light for greenhouse growing.
  • Additional Features
    Good to know
    Can be grown over a pergola, against a wall or allowed to scramble over vigorous shrubs.
