A collection which we found on the over-grazed high altitude plateau of Sierra de los Cuchumatanes, which is also home to some of the colourful Mayan Indians at 2800m in 2004. Where it only formed small plants to 15cm tall, with a rosette of paddle-shaped leaves on long slender stems. Bearing branched inflorescence of blue flowers with silver-white bracts to 5cm across. Best grown in a sunny to partly shaded spot in well drained soil that does not dry out.
