Purple Potato Vine

A few weeks ago I planted this lovely solanum crispum next to an arbor that grows one of my favorite yellow roses, Graham Thomas. I think they will be a lovely combination once they entwine and fill in the arbor. The solanum is fragrant and evergreen and as you can see here is still blooming well into the fall.

omg, Sheila, how beautiful is this plant?? I'm writing it down on my wish list or at least my "research" list. You should repost when it's blooming along with the roses ~ I'm sure that will be a knockout combo.
