Position: full sun or partial shade Soil: fertile, well-drained soil, neutral soil Rate of growth: average Flowering period: May to June Flower colour: deep lavender blue Hardiness: fully hardy Large, deep lavender blue flowers are produced from late spring to early summer, with a second flush in late summer. The variety is ideal for growing up obelisks, walls, fences and pergolas, and even makes a striking display in a pot on the patio. It will happily grow in most spots in the garden but does prefer a sunny wall to climb up. Garden care: Remove dead and damaged stems before growth begins in early spring, cutting all remaining stems back to where strong buds are visible. Apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant in early spring.
