Lapageria





LAPAGERIA ROSEA.--Chili, 1847. This is, unfortunately, not hardy, unless

in favoured maritime districts, but in such situations it has stood

unharmed for many years, and attained to goodly proportions. It is a

beautiful climber, with deep-green leaves, and large, fleshy,

campanulate flowers of a deep rose colour. There is a white-flowered

form called L. alba, introduced from Chili in 1854. Planted on an east

aspect wall, and in roughly broken up peat and gritty sand, it succeeds

well.
