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

😂🤣 I think it breaks all the “rules” but I’ve only lost it once when it got below -20 and even then a self-seeded plant replaced it. 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️ I’ll let you know when I’ve got some seeds @jeatacake

They certainly sound tough. I lost a few things in that winter 9 or 10 years ago which I thought were hardy. Cheers Jacqueline. 🤞 you get seeds produced 👍

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

Forget about tea, I needed a drink after doing this. Chilean glory flower is supposed to just be an annual in the U.K. but mine is positively not. It is over 20' high. Or it was....

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 😊
