A delightful woody vine valued for its drooping clusters of fragrant, violet-blue, pea-like flowers that bloom in spring. The flowers are followed by green compound foliage on the twining stems. Perfect for covering patios, arbors, or fences. Works well trained into a small tree as the thick, woody, trunk-like stems develop. Deciduous.
