  • Solanum Rantonnetii, more commonly known as Blue Potato Bush, is a gorgeous, fragrant patio tree. The flowers are full of purple colour, with a neat, yellow bud in the centre of each flower that adds to the vibrancy of its appearance. This evergreen variety will maintain year-round interest through dark green foliage and a subtle, lollipop stem holding it all in place. All of these standout features ensures it will undoubtedly look great in any borders, patios or plant displays.
  • The genus of this tree is Solanum, a large genus of flowering plants which can reguarly produce food crops that include, potatoes, tomatoes and eggplant. This genus consists of around 2,000 species of plants, with many deriving from the status as 'plant of the sun' due to its Latin links. This variety comes from the Solanum laxum species, allowing it to gain the Potato Vine common name.
  • The gorgeous flowers of this Solanum will bloom from June - September, bringing vibrant coloured flowers with neat additions throughout. It will also feature a lovely, fragrant smell in the same period, adding to its great impact in the garden. On top of that, its green foliage and subtle, lollipop stem will hold it all in place.
  • Planting this tree in moist, well-drained, fertile soil is best for its long term growth, alongside ensuring the soil remains moist through regular watering. In terms of which conditions suit it most, full sunlight is recommended.

Solanum Rantonnetii is a gorgeous patio tree that provides a lovely fragrance through its flowers. The main attraction of the tree is the burst of purple colour throughout the petals, creating an eye-catching, standout feature through the growing season of June - September. The small, yellow bud that forms in the centre provides the perfect contrast between the light and dark shades that this tree possesses. Caring for it well will make it an effective addition to any border, patio or plant display, meaning you should position it in full sunlight to get the best out of it. Regularly watering it to ensure the soil stays moist throughout the year is recommended as it will maintain the flowers, the dark green foliage and effective, lollipop stem that holds it all in place.
