Sollya heterophylla, Lindl. Australian Bluebell Creeper. Small shrub, 2-6 ft. high, with slender, twining sts.: lvs. variable, from lanceolate or oblong-linear to ovate-lanceolate, or ovate-oblong, obtuse or slightly acuminate, entire, 1-2 in. long, usually narrowed into short petioles: cymes 4-8-12-fld., terminal or lf .-opposed: fls. bright blue, 1/3 – 1/2 in. long. July.— Hardy and much cult. in Cent. Calif. and a great favorite on account of the brilliant blue of its fls. Especially valuable for covering banks, rockwork, and low fences, preferring to scramble over other plants. Also grown as an herbaceous border plant, being kept within bounds by the shears. The roots are very attractive to the California pocket-gopher, who plays sad havoc with it if not watched. Sometimes seen in greenhouses. CH
