Bomarea cf. edulis NAB 032


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
Unflowered plants from our seed collection, although attributes and geography suggest a likelihood of this being the species edulis due to widespread cultivation from pre-Columbian times thanks to the edible tubers. If this is edulis, expect 24 or more pink-tubed flowers with green-yellow throats in a fireworks umbel. Showy orange seeds in fall. This is a vining Alstroemeria relative and should be hardy to warm zone 7 especially with mulch. Likes a semi-shaded spot where it can twine to 10'.
