Caiophora (Stinging Serpent) & Loasa

Ortiguilla and Loasa belong to medium sized genera native from the Andes in South America. They are either subtropical or winter hardy, annuals biennials or woody sub shrubs with showy, bell shaped flowers. They are easily grown in any rich, well drained soil in a sunny spot throughout the year. Winter hardy members in the genus Caiophora prefer a well drained soil in a protected spot in the garden with shelter from excessive winter wetness. Excellent in the rock garden. All other species can be grown as annuals.
Sow seeds on top of any well drained substrate, cover slightly with soil and keep pots in full sun at some 20°C throughout the year and soil always slightly moist from beneath. A temperature drop at night down to some 10°C to 15°C will significantly enhance germination in several species. Winter hardy species should be transplanted to the garden as soon as they are strong enough from late spring to summer.
