Canarina canariensis

This is a bit of horticultural tautology as its name  means a Canary Islands plant from the Canary Islands!

It is a herbaceous perennial winter growing climber that can reach about 3metres and its rich orange bells hang from its succulent stems all late winter and spring.I use it up deciduous shrubs in my garden so that I have some interest during this part of the year when the shrub is nothing more than bare sticks.

It is related to the Campanula and it has edible pulp in the seed pods.

A sunny well drained site with shelter from frost and it will grow before your eyes, and I have plants available in 6″ pots at the  moment, these are selling at $22.50
