Description
 
Or as we like to say, Lah-go Poo-Yay-Way.  Presumably collected near the Chilean lake for which it is named, this uncommon clone is not horticulturally distinct from the Lake Caburqua form but does represent important genetic diversity in this monotypic genus.  Scrambling and rambling and climbing woody gesneriad with orange tubular flowers and hardy here in Zone 8.  A good wall plant for sure.  We brought this home from England after acquiring it from an elderly collector who had numerous treasures which admittedly were staring into the abyss.  Happy to say, it is living large here.
