Strophanthus gerrardii 4" pot

Sand Forest Poison Rope.  Another interesting species from one of my favorite plant families!  The flowers are yellow with a pink cup in the center.  This woody shrub has long, vining branches that will easily train to a trellis or structure.  Native to South Africa, it will tolerate arid conditions so it is good choice for water-wise gardening.  The plants are several years old grown from seed and have an interesting caudex forming at the base.
