PLANT FAMILY: Costaceae
BOTANICAL NAME: Dimerocostus strobilaceus subsp. strobilaceus
FORMAL SCIENTIFIC NAME: Dimerocostus strobilaceus Kuntze
STATUS :
CONTINENT: Neotropical
SYNONYMS:
Dimerocostus elongatus,

BOTANICAL NOTES:
On all subspecies of Dimerocotus strobilaceus, the ligules are short and truncate, bracts, bracteole and calyx are green, with bract margins dilacerating into fibers. Subspecies strobilaceus is characterized by the bracts which sheath the base of the inflorescence, completely enclosing the axis. The tops of the bracts are flatter (more obtuse) forming a top angle 120-160 degrees. The inflorescence elongates and often the stem continues to grow through and old inflorescence and form an new, second inflorescence at the terminus.

There are two forms of this subspecies, a white flowering form and a yellow flowering form, both with very large and showy labellums. Thumbnail sheets for these two forms can be found on the following pages:
WHITE: http://www.gingersrus.com/images/P3760-white

YELLOW:http://www.gingersrus.com/images/P3760-yellow

The subspecies is found throughout the southern parts of Central America and western South America to Bolivia and east to Venezuela. I have found this species to be especially common in Panama and Colombia, all in the white flowering form. I found the yellow flowering form at Manu Learning Centre. The type for the subspecies was collected in Panama.

ACCESSION NOTES:

R3238 from Nirvana Garden, Colombia, white
R3239 from Achicaya, Choco, Colombia, white
