Product Description

A rarity in UK gardens, Sollya heterophylla is an evergreen climber which is grown for its nodding clusters of bluebell-like flowers. Normally blue, this is the much sought after pink variety.

Also known as the Australian bluebell creeper, it's perfect for training over a pergola or arch in a sheltered, sunny spot in milder parts of the UK. In cooler regions Sollya is perfect to grow in a container, which can be moved into a greenhouse or conservatory before the cold weather hits.

The dainty, perfectly formed flowers contrast beautifully with the light green leaves and are followed in August-September by edible, sausage-shaped, blue-purple berries around 2.5cm in length, giving you plenty of garden interest throughout the year.

When fully grown, the Bluebell Creeper can reach approximately 1.5m (5ft) in height when supported and makes an ideal candidate for a container where it tends to remain bushier.

Easy to grow, you can plant this climber in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.

Supplied as an established plant in a 2L pot, ready to be planted into its final position. Reaches 1.5m, flowering June to September.
