Polygonatum cathcartii yellow flowered - BSWJ2412

Pot Size: 2 litre
Price: £15.00
It is hardly common knowledge that many species grow as epiphytes, such is the case with this very distinct deciduous species. Where we fond it growing on the sturdy branches of trees even up to the tree line in Sikkim on our first expedition there in 1994. Here the leaves were bright yellow contrasting with the red fruit which were the result of the long tubular distinctly yellow flowers, held on long slender stalks. Best grown in a very open humus rich soil with good drainage in light to full shade. This form has been confused with P. griffithii in the past which is autumn flowering with purple spotted perianth.
