Maianthemum aff. salvinii - BSWJ9019

Pot Size: 2 litre (deep)
Price: £15.00
A new species to cultivation, from one of our collections gathered on Volcán San Pedro overlooking the huge crater-lake of Atitlan in Guatemala in 2001. Where we collected the seed from steep slopes between 2100-2500m, forming 1m tall erect red polished stems with variably shaped alternate leaves from ovate to lanceolate. Terminating in a decidedly pendulous paniculate inflorescence 12cm long, with trilocular red fruit which had followed the white-purple flowers. Best grown in a fertile moisture retentive soil in part shade, protect the rhizome from frost, with a mulch.
