Holboellia angustifolia subsp. chartacea dark flowered - HWJK2213d

Pot Size: 4 litre (deep)
Price: £30.00
A selected form of this potentially the hardiest form to be introduced into cultivation, which we collected seed of near the Tibetan border close to Thudam in the east of Nepal at 3150m. A vigorous woody-stemmed semi-evergreen, twining climber to 6m., with leaves composed of five or more leathery dark green glossy leaflets. Bearing in spring an abundance of separate male (flared purplish-blue) & female (plump, pale pink-lilac), scented flowers. Meanwhile the evergreen looking leaves drop just as the whole plant is coming into flower. The flowers are followed by purple sausage-shaped edible fruit. Best grown in a sheltered site out of freezing winds in a fertile well drained soil with some moisture retention. Closely related to and similar in habit to Stauntonia.
