A vigorous semi evergreen woody vine with thick glossy dark green tri-foliate leaves. In spring it produces fragrant bell flowers consisting of two layers…a pale ivory pink outer and a pale mauve-pink inner. In the fall plum-like sized edible* richly coloured purple fruits are usually borne in pairs, very unique. Its a lot hardier than some people give it credit for as it survived our -14C winter of 2008/9.

How to germinate Holboelia coriacea seeds:
Soak seed 24 hours. Baggie sow in moist coarse sand. Warm stratify 30 days then cold stratify for 3-5 months. Could germinate in the baggie, but germinates well after placed back on gentle heat. Might need light to germinate as it did under the light on the computer desk. Easy and fast growing.
