Description: An outstanding creeping/suckering shrub an unlikely looking close relation to Lapageria, which it bears a close affinity to in its beautiful waxy long tubular bell-flowers. Originating from the Andean forests of southern Chile, where it is often found clinging to the fissures of tree trunks as it climbs. Differing in our climate growing terrestrially forming a colony of stiffly upright short stems 30-50 cm tall with rigid narrow dark green leaves almost white below, which bear the pink pendant flowers summer into autumn when growing happily in light to dense warm shade. Best grown in a lime free peaty soil where it can sucker, raised for easier viewing of the flowers.
