PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

Eccremocarpus syn. Calampelis scaber
Chilean Glory Flower
Delightful climber!
Type/Hardiness Herbaceous, Perennial, Climber, Tender
Flowering period Late spring to autumn
Height 8-16ft/2.5-4m
Light preference Sun
Soil preference Any reasonable, well-drained soill
Sowing time/depth Late winter to early spring, May-December
A lovely climber with attractive, divided, mid-green foliage and masses of small, tubular blooms in shades from deep-red to orange from late spring and well into autumn. If grown in a sheltered position it will sometimes survive a mild winter in the UK, but is more usually grown as a half-hardy annual. Sow early for flowering in its first year.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow thinly on the surface in a small pot of good quality compost from January-March and barely cover with a sprinkling of fine vermiculite. Place pot in propagator or plastic bag, but do not exclude light as this aids germination, which should take 14-28 days. Aim to maintain a temperature of 60F/15C. Prick out seedlings as soon as they are large enough to handle, growing on in 3in pots. Harden off before planting out when all risk of frost is past.
