Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

Sollya heterophylla 'Ultra Blue' boasts darker blue flowers than it parent species, and a denser, more branching habit. This unusual twining climber flowers profusely from early summer to September; it’s nodding blooms standing out against the narrow, evergreen foliage.

Bluebell Creepers are half hardy climbers, best grown in a patio container that can be moved to a frost free position during the cold winter months. Alternatively, grow it year round in a warm conservatory where it makes an eye catching specimen plant. Height: 2m (6', 6"). Spread: 60cm (24").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Flowering Months
From May to October move containers of Sollya heterophylla outdoors to a sheltered sunny position. Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season. Before the first frosts, return Bluebell Creeper plants to a bright warm greenhouse or conservatory for the winter and water sparingly until spring. In spring, cut back the flowered shoots to 2-4 buds from the main sideshoots.

The Bluebell Creeper is half hardy and requires a minimum temperature of -5°C (23°F), so it is best grown over an obelisk in a patio container that can be moved indoors for the winter. Alternatively grow it in a warm conservatory or heated greenhouse. Pot up Sollya plants into containers of loam based compost such as John Innes No.2.

In very mild areas, try growing Sollya heterophylla outdoors where it looks superb twining through shrubs or against sheltered walls and fences. Plant in rich fertile, well drained soil in a sheltered position in sun or semi-shade.
