Cyclea polypetala - KWJ12157

Pot Size: 2 litre (deep)
Price: £20.00
A semi-evergreen twining climber, which I collected seed of from a congested mass of slender stems 3m tall, scrambling over large boulders on the open limestone mountainside in northern Vietnam in 2007. A very distinct species with peltate (umbrella-like with stalk in centre) young foliage maturing to large leathery caudate glossy leaves. Bearing large panicles of individually small flowers, from April in the wild followed by late summer an abundance of black grape-like fruit, with the classic horseshoe-shaped seed, lending it the vernacular name of moon-seed. Best grown in a fertile drained soil in sun or light shade, protecting the root from severe frost.
