This genus contains both winter-dormant and summer-dormant species so whilst we will continue to offer the genus all year, our range within this will change according to the season.
The Tropaeolum that we grow are all climbing or scrambling species and they carry masses of flowers in a variety of shades, many having flowers of intense colouring.
The genus is diverse and cultural requirements vary. These are detailed under each species, though most simply require good drainage and a fertile compost. Some are cold-hardy, the majority will do best if protected from the worst of winter wet and cold combined, cultivation under alpine, cool or cold glass is perfect.
