This climber is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained, neutral soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast growing
  • Flowering period: June to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Smokey mauve-blue flowers, which often have a pink flush, will usually appear non-stop throughout summer on this hard-working climber. Because of its subtle blend of colours, it's easy to mix with a wide range of pinks and purples, and as it remains relatively compact, it's ideal for smaller gardens or patio pots.

  • Garden care: Remove dead and damaged stems before growth begins in early spring, cutting all remaining stems back to where strong buds are visible. Apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant in early spring.
  • Humans: Skin irritant; Pets: Harmful if eaten
