Pot Size: 4 litre (deep)
Description: The sight of this plant on the trail coming down from the mountains after a long productive day at La Garcia forest, was a pleasant surprise. Only forming a relatively small plant some 4m tall and wide with tendrils supporting the slender green stems of three-lobbed thin textured serrulate leaves, conspicuously veined. With a single pink pendant flower held from most of the leaf axils, with bright green tubes and reflexed petals. Meanwhile the fruit was large sausage-shaped yellow to 20 cm long. From the Ibague area of central Colombia at only 2905m. Not expected to be very hardy, so care should be taken. Grow in full sun in a well drained fertile soil/compost.
