  • 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.

Cathedral Bells- Violet

19 October 2020
Grew successfully. Very interesting watching the flower heads form. They begin white then turn into a gorgeous violet. I didn't have much expectations when I threw them in a raised garden bed. I will plan a better display next time as they didn't have enough area to grow where I put them and ended growing up a peach tree. Looked beautiful though. Purchasing again.
