Cup and Saucer Vine / Cobaea Cathedral Bells

by Maureen Sullivan on February 21, 2014

Cup-Saucer-Vine-Cathedral-BellsFull sun. To 20 feet.  A vigorous climber, scrambling to twenty feet and more.  Cup and saucer vine Cathedral Bells displays purple  2 to 3 inch blossoms held aloft above equally beautiful foliage.  Very delicate tendrils scramble over surfaces grabbing on and covering walls, screens, fences and trellises.  The vines do need a little help if the surface lacks adequate texture.  Flowering begins after the vines have become well established.  They are worth the wait. Requires soil with good drainage.
