Solanum crispum 'Glasnevin' Chilean potato tree

Posted: 10 June 2012
Overall: Solanum Crispum planted last Autumn , label showed it to be a climber, it has turned out to be a bit of a thug , not a climber at all, but had to be tied in and has now pulled my fence down , the flower are really wonderful and prolific but obviously the plant is not suitable for the position against a fence !!!
I shall have to cut it right down and think again , would a small leaf Ivy be better ? Can anyone suggest one that will not become a thug and will be beneficial for my insect / bird wildlife ....
