Codonopsis Plants

Himalacodon dicentrifolius

Known by many as Codonopsis dicentrifolia this has now been placed in it’s own species following the Chinese revision in 2015. This seems to have been in and out of cultivation and we’re really hoping someone out there is still growing this. It occupies quite a wide area in the Himalaya including S.Tibet, Sikkim and Nepal and often inhabits vertical rocks, hanging downwards as it grows. One well known plant hunter once told us that the first time you notice it is when you walk straight into it and get a smack in the face!
