This extremely attractive lavender blue flowered perennial pea is a gentle climber to approx 1.75 metres. It has mildly grape scented flowers which make extremely good long lasting cut flowers. It is not as common as it once was in cultivation having fallen out of fashion. Plants can be summer dormant after putting on growth in spring. It may provide you with a few flowers in the first year from seed, but in the 2nd year it will produce a better quantity of flowers. Its native home is Argentina , and is essentially temperate climate grower but it will also stand some frost.
