DescriptionThis fast growing, freely flowering climber is an easily maintained vine, originating in tropical America. It is now seen in gulf gardens, where it has proven to be resilient to the strong sun, and makes a very attractive plant for covering fences and trellises. Its twining stems are relatively thin; the lush shiny, green leaves are small and heart-shaped with pointed tips. It bears smallish, brilliant blue flowers for most of the year, which are bell shaped with a lighter coloured throat and produced in clusters at the ends of stalks. J. penthanta requires full sun or partial shade, and prefers fertile, non saline sandy soils that are well drained. Its somewhat fragile stems necessitate wind protection. This scrambling vine is not drought tolerant or frost tolerant, and needs regular irrigation. Propagation is by cuttings or by layering. It is not prone to insect infestations. As a creeper with controllable growth and neat appearance, only occasional light trimming is necessary. Heavier pruning will encourage new growth and produce flowers on new branches. It will grow well in a container and the beauty of its blossom is best admired on a shade structure or trellis.
