Maianthemum laxiflorum - BSWJ10305

Pot Size: 2 litre (deep)
Price: £15.00
One of our 1st collections on our 2004 mission to Guatemala chasing Maianthemum. Where we collected this vigorous species growing as an epiphyte with distinctly long pendant inflorescences (of white flowers) and deciduous thick-textured alternate leaves on stems to 50cm. In the exact conditions and site cited for M. salvinii. A much confused species, which is why we have had to revert to an older synonym. Best grown in a sheltered site in a moisture retentive soil in part shade, protect the rhizomes from freezing. Was Smilacina laxiflora, a name not accepted by the RHS Plant Finder.
