Billardiera heterophylla – Bluebell Creeper

A twining shrub which can grow to 4 metres tall with support. Grown on its own it forms a dense shrubby habit. It has clusters of pendulous blue flowers from spring through summer. There are also selections with white or pink flowers, and ground cover forms.  Grow in sun to part shade. It readily seeds, and can be spread by birds, so it can become weedy and invasive to surrounding bushland, so plant with care or choose a sterile alternative like Billardiera heterophylla x parviflora ‘Edna Walling Blue Bells’.

This plant was formerly known as Sollya heterophylla.
