Vining species with thin stems and narrow serrated leaves. The flowers can reach 1-2" in size, and unlike other codonopsis I've grown, their petals are separate, in a starry shape, instead of fused into a bell shape. A British site suggested it may need winter protection, which doesn't bode too well for their probability of survival in our garden, which has rather more severe winter temperature than most of the U.K.
This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
