Cup-and-saucer/ Cobaea: white cultivars as vigorous?

Posted by linaria 7 (My Page) on

Hello there
has anyone experience with the white form of Cobaea scandens? Does it grow as strong as the blueish original? I have grown the blue type two seasons, and they were delightfull.
So next season I want to go for a blue-white colour scheme on my balcony and have the white form. But it should grow from the front yard to my upstairs neighbours balcony, so about 7m/21 feet, just a the blue type did. What do you think?
Cheers, thanks a lot,

I don't remember if they were as vigorous, but I do remember that I thought they were insipid. The flowers were lost in the foliage. I won't plant them again. Denise
