Description

Bright yellow, green-spurred, chubby flared flowers delicately pencilled crimson inside, and set off with a dark calyx, grow in dense swarms on thin twining stems clad in tiny delicate leaves. This choice, valuable, and rare Andean plant will improve yearly with a slowly increasing tuber in a well-drained situation.

Sowing Advice

Sow seeds at any time onto a good soil-based compost covering seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. We recommend germinating at 15 to 20 degrees C. Germination may be very slow, perhaps 2-3 months, or sometimes much longer, and these seeds may sometimes wait for spring before emerging. Grow on individual seedlings in 3 inch pots before finally planting with climbing support in a well-drained spot or very large pot.
