Maianthemum scilloideum v. rosea - BSWJ10335

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
A relatively small perennial species arising from a slender much forking rhizome, with upright slender stems of 6-9 alternate leaves. Bearing terminal simple or complex pendant racemes of many small starry pink flowers April to August, maturing to red fruit in erect racemes from June to December. Only found at the highest altitudes in alpine forests of Guatemala and Mexico, where they used to form densely congested colonies until over grazing and deforestation has severely restricted them. Our collection gathered from tiny remnant colony almost at the top of Volcán Santa Maria in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala in 2004. Easily grown in shade in not too cold a situation.
