Vigorous tender climber with stunning deep blue Convolvulus-like flowers to 8cm across in summer. Tactile, soft heart shaped leaves add to the exotic tropical feel. Needs warm conditions to flower well so if you want to grow it outside in the summer keep it in the conservatory until mid June or when the weather really warms up. They can suffer with spider mite in very hot conditions so if your conservatory gets very hot it may do better outside during the hottest months. Make sure you grow it in large pot with a sturdy obelisk for it to climb up. Being a member of the bindweed family it grows very rapidly once it gets going!
