Description: From the same family as Lapageria, an unusual creeping shrub or a climber in its native Chile, where Dan Hinkley et al, found it growing up mossy tree trunks in dense Andean moist forests in 1998. The small scale-like grey-green leaves are similar in shape to a butcher's broom above, very pale and lined below. We grow this as a ground hugging carpeting plant on raised ground to enable us to see the pendant star-shaped white flowers followed by orange fruit. Best grown in sheltered moist shade.
