£15.99  Stephania rotunda - 10-15cm tubers    


  
(Mountain turtle)
Family Menispermaceae
Originating from Malaysia

A potato-like tuber (caudex) sits on the soil and sprouts twining stems bearing large ovate leaves. These grow astonishingly quickly and will wrap around anything in their vicinity.
We recommend a large tripod if grown indoors rather than the curtains. Makes a stunning and unusual house plant. As it ages the caudex becomes very large and woody, and develops deep grooves and fissures.
Will survive a mild winter outdoors in most parts of the UK and new growth in spring will quickly make its way up in to a tree or large shrub.
Grow on moist but well-drained soil in part shade.

Eventual mature plant size :
Height 4m
