Description: We were very excited on our initial encounter with this colourful species in September of 2004 on the Paramo to the south of Bogota Colombia. As at that time the flower buds were red and swollen to bursting point. The foliage would have sufficed as the elliptic few spined leaves were dark and glossy above but close to white below. Returning to collect the black fruit in December we were able to see plenty of the bright orange-yellow flowers held in generous panicles. Easily grown in sun or light shade in any type of fertile drained soil.
