Chorizema illicifolium - Holly Leaved Flame Pea - 30 Seeds

Chorizema or Flame Peas are a genus of some 25 species endemic to Australia and are shrubs or twiners and have masses of spectacular orange and/or red (for the most part) pea flowers in the Spring.
Chorizema illicifolium, is a delicate non-vigorous stem twining climber with narrow elliptical leaves and orange to red pea flowers in the Spring and is suited to a shade or semi shade position.  They are fast growing with slender graceful branches.  You can leave them to their own devices and they will make an attractive display spilling over a bank or on walls or in a hanging basket or you can prune them, pinch them back and cut them back after flowering to make a low-lying ground cover.  These delightful plants are a source of showy colour and delightful blooms.  Easy to grow from seed and requiring only simple stratification by way of pre-treatment. 
Frost tolerant to -7°C this one likes well composted soil with good drainage and is best suited to drier climates with low Summer humidity.  It will grow in humid areas but is likely to be short lived under those conditions.  It is easily easily propagated from scarified seed.
