White pea-shaped flowers with the most delicate tracery of blue veins are held above long green stems with small opposing leaves, adding to the charming intricate appearance of this woodland climber. The stems are unable to support themselves and so the plant will scramble up any available support, its natural habitat is the woodland edge.
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.
