|Design Ideas||The large, pink and white striped flowers make this plant a must for high traffic areas such as walkways, patios and fence lines that are viewing distance from the home. Train onto a trellis or arbor, or allow to sprawl freely on the ground for a more naturalistic woodland look. Add a decorative iron trellis to a container and feature Pink Champagne as the centerpiece in a mixed perennial container garden.|
|Companion Plants||Japanese Maple (Acer); Climbing Rose (Rosa); Daylily (Hemerocallis); Hydrangea (Hydrangea); Butterfly Bush (Buddleja)|
|Care||Thrives in well-drained, lightly alkaline soil, with roots sheltered and top growth in the sun. Mulch to conserve moisture. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system; reduce frequency once established. Feed regularly beginning in spring. Prune spent flowers to promote repeat bloom. Provide trellis or arbor support.|
