Description: New to us to find a second climbing slipper flower, that we encountered in the troubled north-eastern part of Colombia close to Venezuela at Belin at nearly 3,300 m in 2016. A semi-evergreen scandent climber which pushes its way through the branches of surrounding shrubs for support. Bearing perfoliate hastate (triangular) leaves with the stems appearing to grow through the winged petioles bearing terminal inflorescences of pale yellow slipper flowers, with larger bracts and lower lip. Best grown in a fertile drained soil in a sheltered site out of freezing winds. Previously offered as tomentosa.
