Positive ineedacupoftea On Jun 8, 2006, ineedacupoftea from Denver, CO wrote:

Apparently, this (mostly) non-clinging and (mostly) herbaceous plant is likely a child of the parents 'Daniel Deronda' and C. integrifolia. From the prolific hybridizer Raymond Evison. (Obviously; the Evi- series.)

Also known as "Little Falcon," It's name translated from French.

The dark veins in both leaf and flower are what gets me about it.

Positive shortcm On Jul 15, 2004, shortcm from Wilmington, DE (Zone 7b) wrote:

I grow this prostrate, although it will climb. It's well mulched, under my wisteria and a small rose bush. Invisible the first year of planting; this second year, it is less than 2 feet long, and has four branches.

It is very different, so worth keeping. Mine is more sapphire blue than purple.
