    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.

I will have tp as it was doing great then suddenly died

I have 2 plants in containers with obelisks, 1 each side the french windows. I bring them in to the conservatory over winter. Each year they do great for a certain time, then 1 suddenly dies, so every year I have to renew one. I have no idea why, as I have been doing this same procedure for years.

Hello. I have just bought a Sollya heterophylla (bluebell creeper) and having done some research it seems it's a weed in Australia that's considered invasive and a nightmare to get rid of once it starts 'free-styling' in the garden. Is it best to keep the plant in a pot or does the UK weather help to hinder it's prolific growth/invasion? It's a lovely looking plant and I'd hate to end up hating it if it takes over my garden which has been a lot of hard work to achieve. Many thanks

Hello there What is a weed or invasive in one country thankfully isn't necessarily in another country and this plant will never grow like it does in Australia. In the UK it is classed as half hardy needing a glass house if the temperature fall below 5°C so is better to be grown in a pot.

My bluebell creeper as frost damage can the plant be saved

Hello, It really depends on how badly damaged it has been, so the only thing you can do now is wait and see if the plant recovers or not. In the meantime keep it somewhere frost free and water it when the compost gets dry.
