Codonopsis rotundifolia v. grandiflora
« on: November 21, 2020, 07:18:28 AM »
 I am looking for seeds of Codonopis rotundifolia var. Grandiflora.

I really like this plant that I cultivated for several years, but field mice or slugs devoured the tubers.


 thank you so much

here are some photos

this species was fairly available in various exchanges several years ago, but I have noticed that it has disappeared from the lists for a few years.
 I hope someone still has some of it in their garden, to offer seeds to the SRGC exchange for the year 2021/2022.
