Description

Swarms of small but gorgeous red flowers, with distinctive black and yellow lips, and delicate leaves open on thin twining stems. Tubers burrow deep for protection. A very rare and spectacular beauty for pot, conservatory or sheltered well-drained garden in organic peaty soil if possible. Seed very rarely available.

Sowing Advice

Sow seeds at any time onto a good, damp soil-based compost, covering seeds to approximately their own depth. Keep the seed tray below 5 degrees C for many weeks, as these seeds are cold-germinators and can be extremely slow and erratic in germinating, sometimes waiting for spring before emerging. Do not try to force germination with heat, IT WILL NOT WORK. Do not discard the seed tray for at least a year. Grow on in 3 inch pots, do not over water. Plant with climbing support in a well-drained spot or very large pot.
