Plant details

Raised in Canada in the 1970s, 'Blue Ravine' produces its lilac-blue flowers from early summer to autumn. It enjoys hot summers so does best in this country on a south-facing wall. To prune, remove any dead or weak stems in late winter or early spring and cut remaining stems back to the highest pair of strong-growing buds. To encourage blooms to cover the whole plant, train the stems so that they are evenly spaced on their support. As new growth appears in mid-spring, train this to fill any gaps.
