This interesting small climber has heart-shaped foliage and carries numerous perfumed, purplish trumpet shaped flowers for most of the summer, which are most attractive to butterflies. The plant will best show off its many flowers if the wiry stems have some form of low framework or wiry shrub to climb over.
Sow seeds at any time onto a good soil-based compost covering seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. We recommend germinating at 15 to 20 degrees C. Germination may be very slow, perhaps 2-3 months, or sometimes much longer, and these seeds may sometimes wait for spring before emerging. Grow on individual seedlings in 3 inch pots before finally planting with climbing support in a well-drained spot or very large pot.
