Codonopsis Plants

Codonopsis ACE 1625



Originally grown from seed collected on the Alpine Garden Society expedition to China in 1994 and originally thought to be C.pinifolia but almost certainly much closer to C.forrestii, possibly a naturally occurring hybrid between the two. It has long shallowly toothed leaves and large open pale blue flowers with a prominent style. In our garden it flowers considerably earlier than C.forrestii.

Seed is light brown and medium sized.
