Maianthemum amoenum - BSWJ10390

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
Undoubtedly the most conspicuous species in flower. With congested terminal pendant panicles of bright pink small cupped flowers slowly unfolding in early spring on bright pink stems that age to red, holding the distinctive white ageing to black fruit by late summer. An epiphytic species with thick knobbly rhizomes with roots that were clinging to the mossy boughs of small oak trees when we collected the seed from close to the summit of Volcán Zunil, Quetzaltenango Guatemala in 2004. Best grown in a well drained soil with some moisture retention in a warm spot, protecting from penetrating frosts. Was Smilacina amoena.
