This climber doesn't have that much thorn but the few that's on it can hurt you badly. Its an upside down hook, but I still love that cream orange color and profushion of clusters of blooms they are like creamy clouds covering my shade wall. Yes, it did tremendously well in a very windy and cold dark shady wall. Those hooks help it to stay on the wall. No pest, no disease.
