Devil's claw


Recommended Posts

Long time ago, I got brought devil’s claw seeds from a friend, but, I failed to grow them.

On mid of January 2012, the friend drop me a PM and ask whether I want devil’s claw. Answer from me : I want!!!! May I know how much? She said : Free of charge!!! What a good friend is this!!!! Against, thanks… I got 3 species (each 5seeds) from the nice friend Ibicella lutea , Proboscidea parviflora and P. louisiana

On beginning of February 2012. I sowed them. Im only successfully grow Ibicella lutea , Proboscidea parviflora to adult size. Now, both of them are flowering!!!!

Casey, great work! From sowing to flowering in only two and a half months! Should I dwell in a flat with a balcony ever again in future I will try to grow them as well. I love their flowers!

Thanks for showing!

As for pollinating devil´s claws I have no clue unfortunately. :roll:
