Stormy Weather™

There's no Climber that sings the blues any better…mysterious deep smoky purple blues with just a touch of cloudy white on the reverse…set against loads of grey-green leaves. Clusters of this uncommon color can cause a commotion in the landscape 'cause it blooms & repeats in the very first season. A mid-size Climber with full-sized flowers that can be used to give a backdrop of unusual garden duskiness…a perfect contrast with oranges, yellows & whites. More purply blue in cooler conditions.
