Ophiopogon caulescens - WWJ11975

Pot Size: 3 litre
Price: £20.00
Originating from one of my seed collections with the late Peter Wharton in the wet autumn of 2007, from our expedition to Y Ty in the very north of Vietnam on the border with Yunnan. One of the most stunning species that we have introduced into cultivation. Despite finding vast areas of forest almost waist high with dense colonies of this tufted species with strap-shaped thick-textured leaves to 50cm long. With tall dark scapes to 1m straining with the weight of dark blue ovoid fruit, which succeeded the clusters of conspicuous large (for Ophiopogon) white flowers. Easily grown in light to full shade in a little shelter and preferably a leafy drained soil. Has withstood –15C here in a field, without ill effect.
