A nice Amaryllis relative from the Western, semi-arid slopes of the Andes in Ecuador and Peru. Flowering before the foliage appears in spring and early summer, it enjoys abundant moisture during the growing season and a dry rest in winter while dormant. A very leafy species that has spoon shape leaves in abundance. A rapid multiplier by bulb divisions. Grow in partial sun or bright, filtered light.
Abelmoschus species Pink Flower
This plant was acquired as a pink clone of A. sagittifolius but appears to be a different species. We thought it was simply a different flower color for Abelmoschus sagittifolius, but when it leafed out, we realized we had a different species. The leaves start off with a soft serrated orbicular appearance, then as the stem progresses, the leaves begin to morph into a trilobed leaf as evidenced in the photo. Very strange!
