Exotic-looking Brazilian tree with fragrant, vivid lilac-blue clusters of trumpet shaped flowers in summer. Perfect for Bonsai, containers and indoors as a houseplant as it will flower when still quite small and tolerates pruning well. Not a frost tolerant tree so it will need to be overwintered in a frost free place, but when mature it will withstand a light frost. Lovely trained as a standard.
Sow indoors at any time. Prior to sowing nick or scarify seed and soak overnight in warm water. Surface sow onto moist, well-drained seed compost. Just cover with a sprinkling of soil. Ideal temp. 20-27°C. Germination takes 10-15 days approx. Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle to individual pots and grow on under glass. Only move outside in the UK during warm weather.
