Very seldom seen or offered, this rare and superb "Chilean Climbing Gazania" has twining shoots which carry soft, holly-like leaves and large, pinkish-mauve long-petalled flowers which appear over a very long season right into the autumn. These perennial climbers make a breathtaking sight, and when old are surprisingly hardy with thick, trunk-like stems. Very, very few good, individual viable seeds are ever collected hence the high price.
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.
