Cestrum buxifolium - BSWJ14395

Pot Size: 7.5 litre
Price: £55.00
I had taken a photograph of this modest yet distinct high altitude shrub in 2004, but without finding any seed. Hence we were particularly pleased when we finally found a small shrub of it laden with fruit during our visit to El Cocuy in February 2015 at around 4,000m. Although we had great difficulty in identifying it, firstly on account that there is not a Flora covering Colombia. The genus was no problem at all, but our identification kept on going back to this species, but always with yellow flowers, until that is I finally tracked down a pressed specimen with bicoloured flowers as is the case in this collection. An exceptionally attractive shrub in the wild with the characteristic tubular flowers held in profusion from the leaf axils close to the ends of the branches.
