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. Grows in sun to part shade. It readily seeds and can be spread far by birds, so it can become weedy and invasive to surrounding bushland, particularly in south east Australia, so plant with care or choose a sterile alternative like Billardiera heterophylla x parviflora ‘Edna Walling Blue Bells’. It is banned from sale in South Australia, and is a declared weed species which must be controlled.
This plant has had a name change and is now known as Billardiera heterophylla.
