GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Adding the much-desired color of blue to a garden of flowers, blue pea vine (Clitoria ternatea) is a fast-growing vine that blooms continuously from summer through fall.
  • Whether it frames an arbor or spills out of a hanging basket, a blue Clitoria ternatea vine adds a lush tropical look to any sunny garden spot.
  • Also called butterfly pea flower plant because of its fluttering petals, the leaves of this plant add fullness and greenery wherever you plant it.
  • Since you will be growing this lovely vine for its flowers instead of its foliage, you can optimize its blooming potential simply by meeting its few cultural needs.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • Butterfly pea flowers grow in nearly any type of soil, including nutrient-poor, but sandy, acidic soil is preferable.
  • Good drainage is critical, as spurred butterfly pea plants won't tolerate soggy growing conditions.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • Nourish the plant once or twice a year with a water-soluble fertilizer, preferably an organic fertilizer.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • The Blue Pea Plant enjoys full sun for vital growth.
  • However, this easy-to-grow plant thrives in low light conditions including partial shade.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • Compared to xeric plants, which are adapted to drier conditions, blue pea vine is a mesic plant, which means that it needs an abundance of water and consistently moist soil for healthy growth.
