Royal Plum Cathedral Bells Vine Seeds

(P) Pkt of 15 seeds
Item #00576-PK-P1


Grows rapidly and blooms like crazy!

Enormous, exotic blooms begin pale green, then mature to a rich purple with long, twisty chartreuse anthers and streaked white throats!

Big, graceful bells crowd for position on this super-fast, extra-showy twining vine. Cup-and-Saucer takes its name from the bloom form--the big cup-shaped blooms arise from a cluster of petals, surrounding the base like a saucer! A charming effect, enhanced by frilly, curlicued anthers of chartreuse emerging from the white-streaked throats of these huge, silky blooms.

When the blooms open, they are a pale green, almost the same color as the small, tear-shaped foliage. Then they quicky darken to deep, royal purple. This vine is one of the fastest-growing and most trouble-free plant you will ever see in the garden. Pests do not disturb it; it grows effortlessly by twining to 20 feet; and it blooms abundantly from midsummer to fall. Direct-sow the seeds in full sun or part shade. Pkt is 15 seeds.

I planted this to cover an old ugly fence in a mostly shady part of the yard. It has grown so fast and looks absolutely lovely. The blooms are vibrant and so unique! I've gotten so many compliments on this plant that just thrives on neglect!
