Description
 
Ornamental species of unknown hardiness collected by Josh McCullough in North Vietnam.  Broad pleated leaves with yellow six-petaled flowers clustered near the leaf bases.  A lot of the plants coming out of the mountains there are proving hardier than thought.  This would likely survive in a mild garden here but surviving and looking good are two different things.  Best to treat this as the outrageous container plant that is bringing it inside for the winter.  A cool sun room is fine.  This carries an aspect of tremendous refinement and would cause any container designer to salivate.  Thanks to Bleddyn Wynn-Jones for identifying this for us while he was cruising our greenhouses.
