Gardeners' Notes:

Very beautiful plant. The flowers tend to hide behind the leaves away from direct sunlight.

Lovely deep blue in color, some blooms are single and some are double all on same vine. Tight leaves of a beautiful deep deep green. This is definitely one to grow in a pot or hanging basket where you can see it, the leaves tend to "hide" the blooms if it is growing up a stake.

Since it does not grow tall and long, it is suitable for hanging baskets which should be hung against a lighter background so that the blue flowers are at their best.

The flowers are dark blue in the morning when it is open, turning to a purple by noon and darkish pink by evening before closing up. On warm days it closes earlier.
