Description

Bizarre, purple-brown, five-pointed flowers open with an indescribable musky perfume. Finally, on twining stems holding attractive long glossy leaves, sizeable, banana-like seed-pods expand before expelling their silky seeds. Turkey is the home of this rarely seen but intriguing hardy deciduous climber also known as the 'Silk Vine', which will weave and wind its way up any suitable support.

Sowing Advice

For best results, sow seeds as soon as you receive them onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. These seeds can be very slow indeed to germinate, and may wait for spring before emerging whenever sown. Do not use artificial heat to try to germinate them as it will simply disrupt their germination mechanism. Please be very patient, and do not discard the seed pan.
