Description:

Lovely climber from the Far East with spectacular, lavender coloured, hanging racemes which open before the leaves appear. It can be trained to a wall but will look best when it grows freely on fences, walls or old tree trunks. It does not like to dry out completely but not too fussy to soil conditions. We have lovely, fresh seedlings on offer and although it takes several years to get established, but it is well worth the wait as you may get a new shade of colour of flower from seed as it may not resemble to the parent - just need patience.
