Description: A striking plant where we first found this colourful species in February of 2016 on the Cerrito Paramo near the Venezuelan border in north-eastern Colombia at over 3,300 m. The foliage was distinct in being only spine-tipped on the flowering stems, as opposed to the spiny almost holly-like foliage on the remainder of the shrub. Although the most remarkable attribute of the shrub was the dense inflorescences hence its epithet. The yellow-orange flowers were so plentiful as to almost hide the foliage, whereas the heavy fruit does hide the foliage. Easily grown in sun or light shade in any type of fertile drained soil, shelter from freezing winds.
