  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to September
  • Hardiness: tender perennial (will need winter protection)

    Throughout the summer, this annual climber produces a continous supply of eye-catching, trumpet-shaped flowers in sumptuous shades of rich purple and plum, which open in the morning and last for just one day. Fast-growing and very decorative, it is attractive to bees and other beneficial insects, and is ideal for covering a pergola or wall in a sunny, sheltered site.

  • Garden care: Make sure there is adequate support for it to climb up, but do not plant it outside until all risk of frost has passed. Water freely when in growth and apply a liquid fertiliser at monthly intervals. If it is not going to be overwintered in a warm place, cut it back to ground level after it is hit by a frost and start again with a new plant the following spring.
