The feathery seed heads appear wispy and white on hedgerows over the winter months and give rise to another name for this plant - Old man’s beard.

The flowers are small, green-white in colour and grow in clusters all over the climbing, rambling plant.

Distribution

Grows in most of southern England and parts of Wales.

Habitat

Likes to grow on hedges and trees in hedgerows, woodland and scrub.
