Imported Hybrid by Fred Clarke, USA

Here is a really special and unique offering, starting with this seldom-seen Clowesia species which has a name that is a bit complicated to pronounce: thylaciochila (thigh-lass-ee-OH-kye-lah).  Its flower production is incredible: hundreds of light green flowers with darker green stripes cascade over and cover all sides of the big hanging baskets of this beautiful species at the nursery. The flowers are produced in late June with the developing new growths, making them the first Clowesia species of the year to flower, and the fragrance is amazing Ctsm. tigrinum is a showy species, with white flowers spotted in light pink displayed 2-3 times a season in impressive cascades of 20-25 blooms. This mini-Clowesetum will be easy-to-bloom and produce high flower counts multiple times each season with long cascading inflorescences of white to light green flowers with a peppering of fine spots. Mature plants will be “show stoppers!” Get yours now so you won’t be begging for a division from someone else later.
