Maianthemum flexuosum - BSWJ9150

Pot Size: 2 litre (deep)
Price: £12.00
From seed collected on a memorable day when we were robbed at machete point by a gang of robbers. All that aside it was a great day for collections as we found this rhizomatous perennial flourishing in the undergrowth at 2800m. Capable of forming stems to almost 1m tall with alternate ovate-orbicular leaves and a terminal flexuous (zigzag) raceme of white purple speckled flowers followed by persistent red fruit. Best grown in a fertile moisture retentive soil in part shade, protect the rhizome from frost, with a mulch. Was Smilacina flexuosa.
