Tropaeolum tricolor

11th April 2010

A small growing species from Chile and Bolivia that flowers in winter. It seems to be hardy here but it staggers to produce a few inches of stem before the summer (when it becomes dormant).
I would move a piece into the Agave house, where it would be very decorative in early spring if only I could find a tuber at an appropriate time.
