Description

Dark green leaves tinged purple create a dramatic setting for the violet and lavender pea- shaped flowers on this fast-growing nonhardy vine. As the flowers are pollinated, dark violet pods are added to the display. Plant this vine in full sun and use either as a vast growing upright vine or a cascading annual in large containers. Pollinators love the flowers. It's not fussy about soils; reduced fertilizer is recommended to promote flowering.
