CUP And SAUCER VINE (Cobaea scandens) aka Cathedral Bells- 10 Seeds


Large storybook blooms almost year around! Incredibly fast growing Mexican native, "Cup and Saucer Vine" will cover a 25' chain link fence in one season! Climbs by tendrils borne at the ends of its leaves. Fantastical, 3.5" flaring purple bells sporting long sexy stamens create a mas­sive bloom display that'll be much admired by neighbors. Attractive, deep green, heart-shaped foliage. Give it room to grow, rich soil and stand back! Hummers will swarm! Cut back in Winter for bushiest appearance next year

Cobaea scandens alba, the Cathedral Bells or Cup and Saucer Vine, is a perennial vine from Central and South America. It's completely carefree, and will grow 15-25 feet in one season. It's a showy climber for the cool greenhouse, and also forming a very decorative screen on trellis or south facing wall in milder areas.

The vine can reach 20 feet in length or higher and produces numerous large flowers, often 6 cm (2½ in) across. Beautiful climber with truly bell-like yellowish-white flowers. The buds mature from late Summer to early-mid Fall. A profuse bloomer. The fruit capsule is 5.5 to 8.5 cm long, with broad seeds 10-15 mm long including the wing.

Cobaea scandens is a fast-growing, evergreen perennial climber with tendrils on its leaves. The leaf of Cobaea is compound and consists of leaflets, stipules, and tendrils. Each leaflet is oval, 4-12 cm long by 2-5 cm wide, dark green above, whitish underneath, with a brown stalk. The vines have many tendrils and cling well to rough surfaces.

Hardiness zones 9-11, (-5°C/25°F, 4°C/40°F) in Winter. Annual elsewhere. Provide a sunny growing area with a light, rich soil. Water regularly; do not overwater the soil should be moist to wet.
