  • Position: full sun or partial sun
  • Soil: moderately-fertile, humus-rich, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to September
  • Hardiness: half hardy (will need winter protection)

    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.
