10 Fresh Seeds w/Instructions (seeds are very small - see picture)
Hailed one the worlds most beautiful plants on account of its stunning, year-round display of large flowers that are deep pink when opening and slowly change to purplish red, framed by thick, glossy dark green foliage. The large luscious flowers are spectacular, and groups of flowers normally form their own bouquets. This marvelous large shrub or small tree is endemic to cloud forests of the Andes in western Colombia and unfortunately it might not thrive in climates with excessive heat. It wants generally mild, humid subtropical conditions that are frost free but not tropical. It is extremely rare in cultivation, even in botanical gardens. Be prepared for a challenge.
This shrub is a fast grower and can reach a height of 6 feet in just 2 years in optimal conditions. USDA Hardiness Zone 9 or greenhouse.
