Information
Solanum crispum Glasnevin is an impressive evergreen climber which will produce a mass of rich purple-blue flowers with a yellow centre in the summer, occasionally paler blue on sandy soils. It is a strong grower which benefits from being allowed to grow rather than being contained by pruning. While it prefers a free draining soil it will do well on most soils, so long as drainage is improved.
Awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit

Solanum are semi-evergreen twining climbers, with simple lobed leaves and star flowers with prominent stamens followed by fleshy fruits.
