If you want to try again Jeff, I will happily send you some seeds. Believe it or not mine is growing out of a corner between NE and NW facing walls under a balcony through which it then grows, so this is one floor up 🤷♀️ @jeatacake
Hi Jeff, I left some flowers to set seed so now have some ripe seeds. They survived a trip to Laura in Oregon last year so I’m sure they will survive the journey to you! If you email me your address I’ll pop them in the post. @jeatacake
I’ve only lost it once but it had self-seeded so grew back. It is coming out of a very dry corner between two walls, north and west facing. So very dark but very sheltered. Then it reaches a balcony and carries on up... If you’d like some seeds remind me later on and I can let a flower go to seed and pop some in the post 👍 @jeatacake
Very Katie. Not sunny but in a corner between two buildings, it climbs up from below a balcony, through the balcony, on past a pot with a climbing rose in it, through the rose and on up to the roof, mingling with a clematis Montana on its way. Or it did 😂😂 @brightcolours
This is a fantastic plant. It comes from a corner between two buildings, under a balcony, facing north. So not what you would think of as ideal! It reaches up to the balcony then on through a rose and a clematis. Although it was killed off by a very cold winter (2010?) when we had temperatures down to -20C it had self-seeded so came back.
You did 😊 I sowed a few seeds back in March but no luck. I think it was not enough light in the house. I'm going to try again once the risk of frost has passed and overwinter them inside for next year 😊
