Description: Originating from cuttings we took from a find in the wilds of northern Vietnam in 2007, when we happened across a colony of this remarkable small species growing at 2100m. With broadly elliptic thick textured serrated leaves which were dark purple below, a trait that is difficult to duplicate in our cool climate in North Wales. Also remarkable on account of the dark blue fertile flowers (pink in alkaline soil) in the persistent inflorescences subtended by large sterile sepals which are white flushed blue on ageing. Best grown with some shelter from cold in a sunny to lightly shaded situation, in a moisture retentive drained fertile soil. Pink in alkaline and blue in acidic soils.
