A plant surrounded with mystery and some intrigue that may or may not be a natural hybrid. One thing certain is that it has been found in Guatemala, in the wild, on more than one occasion. Variously know as (capitata x xerographica), ‘Yellow Rose’ and ‘Maya’, a name we gave it when we received it from Guatemala in a shipment of xerographica, years ago. The shape and size are similar to the xerographica, with broad, gracefully arching leaves of silvery green. Softer in texture than a xero, its leaves are fuzzy to the touch. The inflorescence is capitate, a cluster of tight branches with long, graceful bracts that blush deep pinkish-peach. Whether this is a natural hybrid or an as yet undescribed species, it is no less a stunning plant and worthy of a place in any collection.  A stunner that came from Guatemala in a shipment of xerographicas, years ago. The shape and size are similar to the xerographica, with broad, gracefully arching leaves of silvery green. Softer in texture than a xero, its leaves are fuzzy to the touch. The inflorescence is capitate, a cluster of tight branches with long, graceful bracts that blush deep pinkish-peach.

Reminder: Because of its possible relationship with T. xerographica, this is considered a CITES plant and can not be exported!
