<i>Cobaea scandens</i> <i>Cobaea scandens</i>

Conjuring an Alice in Wonderland adventure, this impressive fast growing climber sprouts deep green pinnate leaflets, tendrils galore and an eye-catching bonanza of inky purple-colored Campanula-like bells with a musky scent, shapely stamens and ruffled green bracts. The tender hummingbirdfriendly Cup and Saucer Vine hails from Mexico and tropical South America, so it naturally works best as a quick-cover annual or container specimen in cold climates and a stand-alone evergreen in warmer ones. Wondrous even to Charles Darwin, who included it in his 1875 book about climbing plants, Cobaea scandens' floriferous display relishes moist free draining soil and still entrances garden visitors today. Large band.

Blooms June–September.

Size: 10' 0" – 20' 0" high x 0" & spreading wide.

Hardy to zone 9.
