Fabaceae. Magnificent clusters of well-scented, red-flushed, violet-blue flowers appear on this vigorous twining climber from late spring to early summer. The foliage emerges soon after the flowers, and often has an initial bronze flush, which fades as the leaves mature.
Grow in full sun or light dappled shade, in fertile, moist, well-drained soil. Fast grower when given the right conditions.
