Codonopsis Plants

Codonopsis affinis

A vigorous twining climber to 2 metres or more with fine stems and large heart shaped leaves with tiny maroon tipped green flowers, the smallest in the genus that we have encountered.

We have struggled to maintain this plant for any length of time and its hardiness, at least in our experience, is questionable. It does grow readily from seed though so we never seem to be without it for long.

Seed is very fine and brown.
