Pot Size: 4 litre (deep)
Description: From one of our collections gathered on Volcán San Pedro overlooking the huge crater-lake of Atitlan in Guatemala in 2001, a new species to cultivation. Where we collected the seed from the steep slopes near the summit between 2510-2900m, forming 1m tall stems with variably shaped alternate leaves from ovate to lanceolate. Terminating in a decidedly pendulous racemose inflorescence 12cm long, with trilocular red fruit which had followed the white-purple flowers. Best grown in a fertile moisture retentive soil in part shade, protect the rhizome from frost, with a mulch.
