  • Rate of growth: average

  • Flower colour: blue

    Pretty, pendant, blue, bell-shaped flowers from June to September, followed by edible, blue berries, and lance-shaped, deep green leaves. This unusual, twining, evergreen climber is ideal for training over a pergola or arch in a sheltered, sunny site. Where temperatures fall below 5°C (41°F) it's best grown under glass and watered sparingly during the winter months.

  • Garden care: Tie twining stems using raffia or garden twine. In the spring cut back the flowered shoots to within 2-4 buds.
