Holboellia coriacea 'Dark Form'

A vigorous hardy evergreen climber with highly scented flowers in spring. Female flowers are cream and male are a slate blue in separate bunches. Hardier than H. latifolia, Holboellia coriacea is regarded by many to be a variation of the same species, In hot summers it sometimes produces fleshy fruits containing many black seeds, fruit set has proved more reliable if two separate and unrelated plants are grown, both plants will then bear fruit. This form has darker flowers but with the same powerful scent and colourful fruits.

 Introduced by Ernest Wilson in 1907 from central china, with many more recent introductions since.
