Purple Petrea Volubilis Plant (sandpaper vine plant)
Purple Wreath is a charming little climber with long racemes of delicate violet-purple star-like blooms that drape from the branches. It’s a hybrid of a shrub and a climber, with a little wooden trunk that develops attractive curves over time. The floral arrangement looks like a masterpiece. The real purple bloom only lasts a few days, but the blue bracts last much longer, eventually turning gray.
These purple-colored beauties can be grown on a porch, arch, pergola, or wall. You can also grow a Sandpaper vine plant as a stand-alone shrub. This spectacular purple wreath vine will look excellent on pergolas, fences, trellises, and porches. Petrea Volubilis also works well with hanging baskets. This gentle tropical queen wreaths herself in a royal floral show in cycles from spring to fall, with drooping flower clusters evocative of wisteria.

- Do not overwater your purple wreath plant, as it can cause death.
- Water twice a week to keep the soil moist but not wet.
- Mulches help to keep water from evaporating, whether it’s hot, windy, or bright outside.
