Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
Syn. C. ayavacensis. A slender creeping or scandent perennial with flexuous creeping stems to 50cm long, bearing alternate cordate deeply toothed rugose leaves to 7.5cm long with axillary tubular flowers on slender stalks, followed by inflated fruit. A close relative to Lobelia, which it somewhat resembles in flower, but more in common with Codonopsis when out of flower. From one of our seed collections gathered from a botanically rich area of Termales del Ruiz, Colombia at 3350m in 2004. Best grown in a shaded moist position with protection for the roots in winter.
