  3. TROPAEOLUM CILIATUM

    From the leaf axils of the thin branching stems spring countless blood red-veined yellow flowers amidst attractively lobed delicate leaves. This rare hardy perennial climber from the high Andean mountains is perfect climbing through a dwarf conifer or on a climbing frame.

  4. TROPAEOLUM LEPTOPHYLLUM

    This extremely rare plant is possibly not in cultivation and exists in profusion in just a few secret places in the southern Chilean Andes where these very few seeds have been grown in cultivation. Very perennial and hardy down to at least USA zone 8, it makes a steadily-increasing tuber which yearly produces scrambling stems bearing finely divided blue-green foliage beneath masses of five-petalled yellow flowers. In 1833 William Hooker and George Arnott described Tropaeolum polyphyllum subsp. gracile. This scarce plant, which resembles a dwarf T. polyphyllum both in growth and also smaller seed size, needs very well-drained soil or a large pot to perform at its best. Probably the last seeds we shall ever receive. ... Learn More

  7. TROPAEOLUM POLYPHYLLUM

    Billowing trails of blue-grey leaves cascade along the ground or scramble through undergrowth, followed by an overwhelming display of golden yellow ochre flowers opening in June. This gorgeous Andean plant is astonishing when its deeply tunneling hardy roots are established on a hot well-drained bank, and although it improves quite slowly over the years it is well worth the wait. Very few good seeds available. ... Learn More

  8. TROPAEOLUM SPECIOSUM

    Sheets of dazzling scarlet flowers cascading amidst pretty, delicate, divided leaves, adorn this gorgeous plant throughout midsummer. This fabulous Chilean native prefers peat to be incorporated into the soil, when it will make countless, long-lived hardy tubers. It is happiest when planted under dark shrubs, when it will soon establish and scramble over them, especially boring evergreen ones that have either finished, or are yet to flower. Finally, in late summer and autumn, bright blue shiny berries are formed. Just a few hundred fresh seeds are collected here every autumn! We collect less and less each year..... ... Learn More
