Description: An important high altitude collection of this rare species, originating from the same mountain as it was originally discovered at a lofty 3325m in Guatemala. Where this species with sizeable heart-shaped (cordate) leaves grew as an epiphyte, bearing long pendant purple fruit 7cm long (called banana fuchsia by the locals who eat the fruit when ripe). Still retaining some of the elongated salmon-pink yellow tipped flowers 10cm long. Can be cut back to the base, in severe cold, so protect the roots. Easily grown in sun or part shade in any good soil.
