Pot Size: 1 litre (deep)
Description: An exotic looking but remarkably hardy species only recently described to science. Which forms a deeply delving taproot and a rosette of pinnately lobed leaves which become more lobed with age. With stiffly upright stems elongating to 50cm, bearing several flamboyant magenta to crimson yellow-throated trumpet-flowers, widely flared at the mouth, in early summer. Found growing on a steep stony exposed hillside, therefore best grown in a sunny very well drained position. One of my collections from the Zhongdian area of Yunnan, China, made at 3550m.
