Ipomoea lobata - Spanish Flag


A quick-growing half-hardy annual climber.


Easy to grow with cascades of exotic-looking flowers, flame-red fading to cream.


Soak the seeds overnight in cold water or chip the seed coat with a tiny notch. Sow under cover from March - May in modules. Grow on to plant out in a sunny, sheltered site after late frosts.


Space 30cm apart at the base of a supporting frame. Do not overfeed with nitrogen as this
will result in too much leaf grow at the expense of flowers.


Flowers will continue to be produced almost until Christmas.


Height 1.2 - 2.4m.
