Pot Size: 4 litre (deep)
Description: Initially we were surprised to see this very familiar climber growing happily in Moscow, but pleased as we did not have to go all the way back to South Korea to collect more seed. One of the most ornamental hardy forms of the Dutchman's Pipe, with strong growing corky woody twining-stems. Bearing large heart shaped leaves (that are butter-yellow in autumn), which only start to unfold as the flowers begin to age. Meanwhile the conspicuous sized yellow brown throated saxophone-shaped flowers are produced in abundance on the bare stems in spring, followed by large longitudinally ribbed seed capsules in the wild. Easily grown in a fertile drained soil, with its base in shade and full sun to bake the top. Hardy to -30C or lower.
