A Polish cultivar growing up to 1.5-2 m. Flowers, up to 14-17 cm across, usually consist of 6 pointed, wavy-edged tepals that are violet-blue on the upper side and pale violet underneath. Pale yellow anthers and filaments. Flowers are borne in June-July and again in September. The plant uses leaf petioles to climb. Useful for growing up fences, arbours, trellises, stakes and other garden supports. It can also climb up natural supports such as deciduous and coniferous trees or conifers that don’t require hard pruning. Particularly striking when grown against a fair background or next to the yellow-flowered or yellow-leafed plants. Suitable for container culture.
