South African and Australian Natives

Cynanchum marnierianum 2.5" pot

Perfect for a very unusual hanging basket.  The stems are long, long, long, thin, flexible olive green ropes with a warty texture.  Very easy to grow, it fills out a basket rapidly if the stems are pruned and poked back into the pot to root and start growing.  In the fall, bright yellowish green flowers that look like tiny daffodils sprout out of the entire length of each stem.  Surprising to say the least!

(Apocynaceae) Also known as Sarcostemma marnierianum.  Native to Madagascar.
