Codonopsis Plants

Codonopsis benthamii



A twining climber closely related to C. tubulosa and C. macrocalyx. The corolla is bright green and tubular and slightly flared, the calyx lobes being rather short and darker towards the tips. The buds are dark and the leaves relatively large and toothed.

We have been successful with inter-nodal cuttings on one occasion.

The seed is small and dark brown.
