Sheets of dazzling scarlet flowers cascading amidst pretty, delicate, divided leaves adorn this gorgeous plant throughout midsummer. This fabulous Chilean native prefers peat to be incorporated into the soil, when it will make countless, long-lived hardy tubers. It is happiest when planted under dark shrubs, when it will soon establish and scramble over them, especially boring evergreen ones that have either finished, or are yet to flower. Finally, in late summer and autumn, attractive bunches of bright blue shiny berries are formed.

    Germination; Sow indoors immediately. Tuber forming. The seed will benefit from scarifying, gently file the seeds then soak for 24-48 hours until swelling is noticeable. Sow seeds into a soil based compost and cover to their own depth with compost or grit. Propagate 18-22°C for 2-4 weeks. Then cold stratify -4-+4°C for 4-6 weeks. Move to 5-12°C for germination. Germination can be very slow, 2-3 months or much longer, these seeds may wait until spring until they emerge. When large enough to handle transplant to 8cm pots. Pinch out the growing tip when the plant is 7cm to encourage side shoots. Plant out when danger of frost has passed.

    Growing; Thrives in gardens with cool moist summers. Plant in humus rich cool soil where the roots are in shade where the plant can grow into full or partial sun.

    Cultivation; Cut back after flowering.
