"Golden Chalice Vine" Enormous nine inch long yellow cupped trumpet flowers with five purple lines; on stout stems--a Mexican native essential for conservatory or porch garden. Various plant friends lug a tub of this substantial shrub (vining only when so encouraged) into their winter plantrooms for an amazing stunning early winter floral display especially as it gives off a lovely coconut/vanilla scent.. Horticulturally the opposite of "subtle." We are informed that this is usually called Solandraa hartwegii in English conservatories.
Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.
If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.×
