    Not a spectacular one, but cute in her own way. It was discovered in 1977 in the south of Ecuador and described in 1980 by Carl Luer. She lives in the Andes at altitudes from 2000m to 2700m. I cultivate it temperate to cool. It's maybe not a very spectacular flower, but I like the multiple flowers on an inflorescence.

    A well grown plant like that is always a pleasure to see.
