Cucurbitacea sp. BO-16-037
One of our favourite plants to grow from seed this year! An unknown, tall, perennial climber in the Cucurbitacea family with miniature watermelons. Probably a species of Thladiantha and possibly T. davidii? Produces twining stems with the most stunning foliage, marked dramatically in silver. The plants we offer have been grown by us from seed collected by Bjørnar Olsen in Sichuan, China at 2200 metres. Humus rich, well-drained soil in part shade. Should prove to be a totally hardy species, though keep frost free until the plants are more mature.
