Sheets of dazzling scarlet flowers cascading amidst pretty, delicate, divided leaves adorn this gorgeous plant throughout midsummer. This fabulous Chilean native prefers peat to be incorporated into the soil, when it will make countless, long-lived hardy tubers. It is happiest when planted under dark shrubs, when it will soon establish and scramble over them, especially boring evergreen ones that have either finished, or are yet to flower. Finally, in late summer and autumn, attractive bunches of bright blue shiny berries are formed.
