Codonopsis Plants

Codonopsis rotundifolia

A fairly new one to us but it's bulking up promisingly. There are two variants as far as we are aware but they are dealt with separately but all three are worth growing. This twining climber has beautiful straight sided bells in yellowish green with maroon staining on the outside and dark maroon speckles internally. The calyx and bud are also quite distinctive with fine lines in maroon radiating out from the stem.

Seed is small and brown.
