  • Perennial climbing vine

Perennial climbing vine with large purple violet bell shaped flowers up to 5cm in length. In temperate climates it can be grown as an annual. Flowers appear from late summer until late autumn. Flower buds will start out white and develop into deeper purple as they mature. Once established Cobaea is a fast growing vine able to cover a large area rapidly. Young vines are cold sensitive so will need protection from frosts. Great for tropical gardens, trellises, covering fences, arbors or west facing walls. Also known as "Cup and Saucer Vine". "Mexican Ivy" or "Monastery Bells".
