Clitoria (Butterfly Pea)

Butterfly Peas belong to a broad genus of annual to perennial climbers or woody shrubs from tropical and temperate areas. Most tropical species are perennial and evergreen and make semi-woody stems, trifoliate leaves and quite large white, rose, pink, lilac to rich blue flowers. All are easily cultivated in any rich, well drained substrate in a sunny spot throughout the year. In winter reduce watering and keep plants at a minimum of some 15°C.
Prior to sowing scarify seed (e.g. carefully scratch the seed coat with fine sandpaper) and soak them in luke warm water for some 48h. Sow flat at a minimum of 20°C throughout the year in any rich, well drained soil in a sunny spot. Filing the seed coat a little bit prior to sowing may shorten the germination time.
10 seeds per package.
