Thanks it was new last year ,I was pleasantly surprised it survived the winter ,it's an evergreen a climber it will grow 6/10 ft in 10 years it has small flowers in the spring and then these gorgeous purple berries , this photo doesn't do it justice I couldn't take it without the white reflection ...

Thanks Janey , yes the Rowen berries are a sure sign of autumn aren't they , autumn is coming round much to quickly after such a lovely summer !

I rather like the flowers!

One of my most reliable and favourite vines (Sollya heterophylla) has now been moved to the Billardiera genus.

Has it Meanie ,The Bluebell Creeper mine has done well this year from the original seed you sent me I'm pleased to say I've managed to save seed for next year ..

Bluebell Creeper or Blue Sweet Pea?

That is a very attractive climber, I love it when you have flowers followed by berries;0)

Sollya heterophylla Bluebell Creeper Meanie , would you like some seed ? I've collected some ! I saved some of the Billardiera seed from last year I'm not sure if it's still viable but will save some again this year if you are interested ....
It's a bonus when a plant has colourful berries Carole :o)

Thanks Amy! But my Sollya/Billardiera heterophylla are mature enough to overwinter in the shed during arctic weather. And I bought some seed for B.longiflora just last week!

That's o.k Meanie I'm assuming you grow your Sollya H.in a pot I should try that ! I grow it from last years seed each year ....

Always in a pot!
