Colombian Climbing Lily SEEDS (Bomarea multiflora) TROPICAL VINE
A beautiful, small vine related to lilies, native to rain and cloud forests or paramo in the Andes in Colombia and Ecuador between 1200 and 4200 m. Bomarea multiflora forms an underground tuber that produces slender shoots with oval leaves and a terminal cluster of stunning, red or yellow, bell-shaped FLOWERS In cultivation it does well in a range of TEMPERATE climates.
Sow seeds at any time onto a good soil-based compost covering seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. We recommend germinating at 15 to 20 degrees C. Germination may be very slow, perhaps 2-3 months, or sometimes much longer, and these seeds may sometimes wait for spring before emerging. Grow on individual seedlings in 3 inch pots before finally planting with climbing support in a well-drained spot or very large pot.
