Also known as cathedral bells, Cobaea scandens is a vigorous vine, native to tropical America, where it grows as a woody perennial.The flowers are typically blue and thrive in the greenhouse or conservatory, but may also be grown as an annual in a sunny border or patio. Given the right conditions indoors, Cobaea scandens can flower all year long.
Cobaea scandens f. alba has clear white flowers. It's a rampant climber, and will quickly scramble up a trellis or obelisk. For best results grow in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun, or in containers on the patio or in the greenhouse or conservatory. If protected from frost in winter, Cobaea scandens f. alba may survive, and could even continue flowering. It makes an excellent cut flower.

This is the first time that i have grown Cobaea, i have never Sean the plant grown before, but what a very present surprise, i will keep on growing it from now on, long with the rest of my climbers.
we have a large seed pod on our Cobaea scanden - is it possible to save the seeds for next year? if so when is the correct time to harvest them? we have two plants which are in full bloom. beautiful.
