Pot Size: 2 litre (deep)
Description: Originating from the memorable day in a fabulous Paramo within a day's drive from Bogota. Where after several hours driving we eventually stopped at a lake at 3,300m, part of the water supply to Bogota. With a small wooded area alongside full of all sorts of treasures growing within, one being this species. Here it had formed a fairly wide small tree on the perimeter, with somewhat of a tiered habit, which in turn were well branched and dense bearing small leathery leaves that are so familiar to us that grow this genus. As well as copious quantities of the most unusual top-shaped palest green-creamish flowers backed by pale green ruff of calyx lobes. Best grown in some shelter from freezing winds in a well drained soil with plenty of humus for moisture retention, in good light.
