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

    The violet-blue colouring of the star-shaped flowers, coupled with their light perfume, make this a stand-out addition to the summer garden. An easy and reliable climber, it blooms prolifically, and it looks wonderful when clambering over an arch or obelisk.

  • 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.
