Violet, pea-shaped flowers arrive in profusion during mid-winter to brighten up the short days of the year. Tolerant to dry conditions, this Australian vine attracts much attention when in full bloom. A strong grower with stiff, leathery leaves, it can be grown in a hanging basket or staked in a potted container. To initiate flowering, make sure the nighttime temperatures are quite cool (about 40°F) in late fall and early winter. Then, prepare to be amazed with its glorious show of blooms.

It won't be flowering any time soon, but it's doing very well and curling around itself without much help. (Posted on 11/9/2016)
