Description

Beautiful elegant hanging bells – including the clanger – in the richest purple. One of the longest flowering climbers you can grow. This was the most asked about plant in the garden last summer. Grow as a climber or a trailer in a container and pick whole vines for the vase.

Care Tips

Grow outdoors as an annual or overwinter under glass in a frost-free greenhouse or conservatory provide plenty of growing support. May need cutting back in late winter to restrict its size.
