$14.50
Sold Out


Petrea volubilis is one of the most distinct and beautiful of the cultivated climbers. It looks somewhat similar to a tropical Wisteria. It is a vigorous woody vine that eventually can cover large areas if not pruned. The star-like flowers are extremely effective when massed. Over a porch or along a fence it makes a glorious show in the spring when the innumerable, long, mauve flower sprays appear. There is also a lesser flowering season towards the end of the summer through fall.
The flowers can be cut and used displayed for up to 3 days in a vase.
