Codonopsis Plants

Codonopsis subglobosa

A delightful twining climber that flowered for the first time for us in 2014. All the stems and foliage are covered in fine hairs giving the plant a silvery appearance. It is rather late to surface before climbing to 5 feet or so, flowering in late summer. The leaves are small and heart shaped and the flower wider than deep with very recurved petals. The colour is pale green with the recurved tips in dark pink.
