Caiophora lateritia

Common name climbing tingle lily
Family loasaceae
Life cycle biennial
Flowers orange (late summer)
From seed Germinate at room temperature
detailed seed-starting info below

Vining species whose gray-green leaves are covered in silvery hairs that deliver a bit of a sting. The intricately shaped flowers appear in the second year of its life cycle. Not commonly grown, and not much horticultural information out there. I have just a few seedlings, hoping to keep them alive for a year to see its flowers.

We're re-establishing this plant this year (it used to grow in our garden, but slipped away)
