Product Description

Originating from the Indonesian Island of Ternate, this unusual member of the pea family is one of the most amazing vines to grow. These will bloom all year long in frost free zones or inside as an exotic vining houseplant. Technically a tropical plant, they are also easily grown as annuals in colder climates and will quickly bloom from seed in about 6-8 weeks. Flowers are solitary, bright deep blue with light yellow markings that are about 5 cm long and 2.5-4 cm wide. So named because they are a favorite food source for butterflies, Butterfly Peas are fast growing, up to 4.5 meter in a single season, providing quick covers for lattice, trellis and arbors or grow them in hanging baskets. They prefer full sun to light shade, are very drought tolerant and are well-adapted to a variety of soil types.
