Post An edible that is absolutely gorgeous (picture)
From Chile comes this beautiful flower, Lapageria rosea. In Chile it is known as copihue. Copihue is the national flower of Chile. It is a winding climbing vine with evergreen leaves and knock-out bellflowers. The fruit is shown in this picture and it's pleasant tasting. It is hardy in the Portland area.

Take a look at the picture:

Portland is USDA zone 8. If top is killed, plant will resprout from roots. I don't know what zone is Essex in the UK.
