A few weeks back i posted a Picture of the above plant when about 3ft high from its container ,this was it.

Over the weeks since it has been trained on garden string tied across the inside of the glass house roof just above head height and now covers a area about 8ft x10ft

The colour brightens the house at this time of year.
Grows from a Tuber planted deep as it is not very hardy however the leaves and flowers will take several Degrees of frost without damage after the flowers fade in spring it will die down and not re appear until around november.
Grows wild in Chile and belongs to the Nasturtium family
Enjoy I do.
sorry i duplicated one picture.

No need to be sorry I don't remember half of the plants other members have.
Thinking about it believe several members have shown them
