Common name:
Canary Island Bellflower

Origin:
Canary Islands

Description:
This lovely species originally grow in cool, highland forests of the Canary Islands and produces beautiful, bell-shaped flowers. The flowers are orange-red and produce abundant nectar, which makes them attractive to insects. The orange-purple fruits are edible and can be compared to figs. The plant forms underground tubers, which is why it can grow up from the ground each spring. Due to the cooler forests of the Canary Islands, the plant doesn’t like too much heat during the summer. It doesn’t like frost during the winter as well. Move the plant to a half-sunny spot and take the tubers inside during winter.

Germination instructions:
First soak the seeds for 24 hours in lukewarm water. Then sow them just below the surface of sowing mix and let them germinate at 20-22 degC. Keep the soil constantly moist and put them at a bright spot.

Sowing time:
All year round
