This is a very interesting hybrid between C fasciolatum x C formosanum producing a very interesting flower with a shape similar to a small formosanum. The formosanum also influences the flowering time. It tends to start growth early and flowers in April. For this reason it is best grown in an alpine house as a late frost will severely damage growth and flowers.
All plants are sent out potted in the appropriate mix during the dormancy period from OCTOBER to MARCH.
