Sollya heterophylla Bluebell Creeper

Sollya heterophylla - Bluebell Creeper - Plant in 3.5" Pot
Availability: Out of stock

These delightful small climbing plants were introduced from Western Australia and have become a popular addition to summer displays. They are only half hardy and must be given winter protection against frost in all but the mildest parts of the Uk. As they are a small plant it should be easy to overwinter in a greenhouse or conservatory. An evergreen plant with attractive narrow leaves and beautiful nodding rich blue bell shaped flowers in summer and autumn followed by oblong dark blue, shiny, edible berries. A delightful addition to most gardens! Can be grown as part of a mixed planting, as an individual specimen, or in a pot or container. Use a good quality John Innes compost as this plant will be there a long time and peaty types of compost eventually degrade and become too packed and choke the roots. Ensure you feed regularly as a hungry plant is a poor performer. We recommend Osmoscote pro 12-14 month applied in the early spring. One application gives all the nutrients the plant requires for the whole year. John Innes is a soils based compost
