A tender evergreen climber with beautiful pale and dark blue flowers, which resemble a butterfly in shape, from summer to autumn. An ideal plant for a Butterfly house, especially good for East African species as this plant is native to Uganda. Even small plants will have a profusion of flowers so size can be restricted by growing in a pot. Grow in loam based compost. Position in full sun but provide some shade in a very hot Conservatory. This plant can be placed outside for the summer in the UK but it is not frost hardy.
9 cm pots.
