Comments: This perennial produces royal blue trumpet-shaped flowers with yellow throats. The blue is quite intensive and prominent on a healthy plant. It grows well in containers, especially hanging baskets so the long vines can trail over the sides of the containers. Best flowering occurs when plants receive full morning sun. Fertilize with a water soluble fertilizer several times during the growing season.
