Solanum rantonettii


Solanum rantonettii (Solanum rantonnetii (Royal Robe))

A tender plant. The camera has made it blue - it's really purple!

Very showy for a 'spud'. How big does it get for you? and is it easy to overwinter?

I had a standard one which I grew in a pot. It flowered all summer into the autumn and I cut it back and put it in the greenhouse. It grew again in the spring, but last year's lack of sun didn't suit it and it had very few flowers. I ditched it in the autumn - too much else in the greenhouse for a large pot!

This is a new small version - I know it will grow but by how much I don't know. I think I'll treat it as a pretty annual...possibly try it in the greenhouse...
