• Strophanthus speciosus
This very rare plant can be grown as a scrambling shrub or a woody vine. The narrow leaves are in whorls of three, a shiny green above, dull and paler below. The flowers are borne in clusters at the ends of branches, pale yellow, russet brown towards the base. The fruit which is only borne in sunny summers is a long two horned pod. The seeds are very poisonous and are used in heart medicine but if you grow foxgloves, there's no reason not to grow this, unless you're going to dip your arrows in a decoction! 2l pot
