An unusual little Neo. from Sao Paulo state in Brazil, for which the plant is named. A stoloniferous species that has an upright, tubular shape of stiff, coppery colored leaves that taper to a sharp point. The flowers are very large and showy, white with lavender towards the tips. Known with certainty only from the type collection, on the coast near Sao Sebastiao. All plants in cultivation appear to be descendants of that single collection.
