Description:

Ipomoea albivenia is a fairly hardy, deciduous climber with thick, glossy, grey-green, heart-shaped leaves that are velvety white when young.

It has large solitary, trumpet-shaped, scented, white flowers in February and March.

The flowers open at night which means it is probably moth pollinated. The fruit is a woody capsule that bursts open to release the beautiful cotton wool-covered seeds giving it a second ‘flowering’ season.

Plant in full sun or semi-shade in very well-drained soil.

Beware of overwatering.

Size climbs up to 4m
