Clitoria is a member of the legume family and is sometimes called Blue Pea. It's an annual vine for a sunny spot and will climb to about 9', producing 1 1/2" semi-double flowers within 4 months. You can pinch the plant back to force several stems to grow, thereby doubling or tripling the flowering capability. Sow seeds in warm soil (70F-75F) and seeds should germinate in 15-30 days.
