Pot Size: 1 litre (deep)
Description: An intriguing species, which we gathered seed of from steep high altitudinal shaded scrub covered banks on Volcán Zunil, Quetzaltenango Guatemala in 2004, at 2950m. Where it grew to 1m tall with arching stems with variably shaped alternate leaves with undulating margins, terminating in a decidedly pendulous flexuous (zigzagging) racemed inflorescence 10cm long, with trilocular red fruit which had followed the heavily pink speckled flowers in this variety. Best grown in full to part shade in a drained but retentive soil, shelter from severe cold. Syn. Smilacina flexuosa. v. erubescens .
