Pot Size: 4 litre (deep)
Description: From a collection we gathered on our 2002 expedition to eastern Nepal with Dan Hinkley et al, as we were descending down The Mewa Kola. Where this collection was scrambling in the undergrowth, hence only a layer was collected. As suspected on flowering it was confirmed to be H. latifolia, but the epithet covering foliage of 15 x 2.3cm has been mistakenly reduced to a synonym (presently) of H. angustifolia. Male flowers a bronzy pink colour on their exterior, greenish yellow interior, with the tips of the sepals recurving. The larger female flowers similar bronzy pink colour, both in and out, recurving at the tips. Fruit small green sausage-shaped. Best grown in a sheltered site out of freezing winds in a fertile well drained soil with some moisture retention. Closely related to and similar
