Description: Documented as being a common species at the highest altitudes of Central America. Not so as things have changed drastically since that time, as it was only on our second expedition to Guatemala that we were able to find sometimes only remnant populations of this densely carpeting rhizomatous perennial at above 3000m. With flexuous slender stems to only 40 cm bearing narrow alternate leaves and a terminal raceme of white to reddish flowers in spring followed by red persistent fruit. Best grown in a fertile moisture retentive soil in part shade, protect the rhizome from frost, with a mulch. Was Smilacina scilloidea.
