Another New Zealand introduction from Plant World! Twining stems carry lovely, pale blue, jasmine-like, starry flowers in spring and summer followed by showy, snow-white berries. Superb in a conservatory or sheltered garden. Few seeds are collected from this delightful climber.
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.
Common name:Sweet Appleberry
