Vestia lycioides/foetisa, 15 seeds
This rare and handsome shrub from Chile belongs to the Solanum family, same as the tomato, the blue potato bush, the white potato jasmine vine and many more wonderful plants. But Vestia lycioides (also known as V. foetida) is an unknown to most folks, and it doesn't have the five-petaled star flowers common to that family. Instead, its pale greenish-yellow flowers are long tubular, bell-shaped, somewhat similar to those of Fuchsias. Quite a plant to puzzle and impress. Bloom period is from spring though summer. Dark green, aromatic leaves. Hardy from zone 8 onwards. 6 feet tall and wide. Full sun. Well-drained soil. Regular water. Hard-to-find fresh seeds, harvested 07/2017.
