Cobaea scandens, Cup and Saucer Vine (blue-purple)

Short Description

Vigorous climbing vines festooned with large, pretty 2" bells.

Full Description

Vigorous climbing vines are festooned in late summer with large, pretty 2" bells that gradually transition from creamy pale-green to striking blue-purple. A favorite of Victorian-era gardeners, vigorous climber is nicknamed the “Cup and Saucer Vine,” the blossoms looking a bit like teacups poised on saucer-like green calyxes. Deep-throated blooms are enticing to hummingbirds.
