Sollya heterophylla

Sollya heterophylla

Bluebell Creeper. Loveliest of lovelies, sells on sight, but alas not the hardiest, hailing, as it does, from SW Australia. With mild winters, many are getting away with it I'm told. A conservatory suits it admirably however, where it will produce a succession of beautiful little sky-blue, bell-shaped flowers throughout summer and autumn. Not too rampant, up to 2m or more.
