ACCESSION NOTES:
Le Jardin Ombrage - this is a placeholder record for a ribbed leaf variety sim. to C. sanguineus. The identity of these purple leaved plants is in doubt. Potted up this specimen and kept in the greenhouse over winter. Greenhouse temps got down to low thirties and this plant did not survive. Rhizome rotted away despite being kept relatively dry. NOTE 7/16/2003 - this probably was a form of Costus erythrophyllus.
