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. It makes a perennnial tuber, and is much easier to please than the similar but red Tropaeolum speciosum.
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.
