Description

This beautiful and unusual hardy climber from Western China makes long, hairy, ascending stems from which dangle unusually large, delicate, yellowish-green bells, soft milky-blue inside, which are beautifully striped and spotted purple within. The root is highly valued in China where it is used to make a tonic.

Sowing Advice

Seeds can be sown at any time but are best sown in winter or early spring to benefit from a cold spell in the wet compost to break their dormancy. We advise covering seeds very thinly with sand or fine grit to about the depth of the seed size. If the seeds do not come up within 6 to 12 weeks the damp seed tray can be given cold treatment in a fridge for about four weeks. They may still take very many months to appear, so please never discard the pot or tray.
