Pot Size: 4 litre (deep)
Description: Forming a small to medium sized herbaceous twining climber, where we collected the seed from La Callera Paramo to the south of Bogota in central Colombia at around 3050m. Arising from a congested clump of tuberous roots, from which arose slender twinning stems to 3-4m long, with narrowly ovate to linear alternate leaves with soft hairs below. Bearing flowers of reddish-orange exteriors with orange to yellow and dark spotted interiors, in congested umbels mid summer through autumn for us. Best grown in a rich well draining soil with shade for the roots and protection from severe frost. We find them to be very successful planted under bushy shrubs, which protect the tubers from penetrating frosts.
