Maurandia Barclayana plants

Maurandia Barclayana plantsMaurandia Barclayana is an elegant twining plant that is best grown in pots, so that it can more conveniently be taken indoors in the winter. The soil should be light and rich.

Cuttings can be taken either in spring or autumn, or it may be raised from seed. It does very well in the open during the summer, placed against a wall or trellis-work, but will not stand the cold. In the greenhouse it reaches perfection, and blooms in July.

The height of the Maurandia Barclayana is about ten feet.
