This fast-growing tropical climber produces an unforgettable display of large blue flowers from mid to late summer. It is perfect for for covering a trellis in a very warm and sheltered part of the garden where it will attract bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects. It will be happier, however, in the UK, in a warm conservatory where it can climb to 8 feet or more.

Sowing Advice

Sow seeds, covering them thinly, preferably in spring but can be at any time, in good light, at between 15 and 20 degrees C. Prick out small seedlings into 3 inch/8cm pots containing a John Innes, loam-based compost. Grow on before planting into a large container or sheltered spot outdoors, with climbing support, and be sure to protect them from freezing in winter.
