From a seed collection we gathered on our return to San Jose from Panama in the high Cordillera de Talamanca. Of a charming white flowering species which had formed a large colony in dense moist shade, of lax stems to only 50cm with ovate-elongated doubly-serrated leaves 15cm long and 3-winged seed capsules. Best in a container or testing in a sheltered shady area in a drained fertile moisture retentive soil.
