Solanum Crispum 'Glasnevin' (Chilean Potato Tree)

Solanum Crispum 'Glasnevin' (Chilean Potato Tree)

Clusters of purple flowers

Deep purple-blue, scented blooms appear in generous clusters from summer to autumn creating a pretty spectacular display. These are followed by yellowish-white fruits. The dark green leaves will usually stay on the plant in milder winters, but will drop if the temperatures become too low. This vigorous climber is perfect for covering a sunny, sheltered wall or fence. Lavenders and catmint are ideal companion plants, clothing the ground underneath the climber and helping to balance the design.
