Polygonatum costatum - BSWJ6599

Pot Size: 1 litre (deep)
Price: £15.00
An evergreen epiphytic species from the cloud forests of the highest mountain in Northern Thailand, where these closely guarded plants have not been available for examination even to the Thai botanists. The red flecked arching stems bear thick textured ovate leaves held in whirls of twos and threes. Unlikely to retain this name when properly examined as the pendulous urn-shaped white flowers held in congested axillary clusters differ from the description of the species. The flowers are followed by persistent fruit which translocate above the foliage for the winter, eventually turning red by the spring, whereupon the whole show starts again with the old fruit still in place. Previously offered as P. aff. anomalum.
