PLANT FAMILY: Costaceae
BOTANICAL NAME: Costus claviger (aff. claviger) 'Aloha'
FORMAL SCIENTIFIC NAME:
STATUS :
CONTINENT: Neotropical
SYNONYMS:


BOTANICAL NOTES:
SEEPID#7425 FOR A GENERAL DISCUSSION OF COSTUS AFF. CLAVIGER FORMS.

This is sold by Aloha Tropicals as "Costus laviger" (without the C in claviger). This plant seems to fit very well with the Costus aff. Claviger described by Maas in 1977. It has a short truncate ligule, red bracts absent of nectar callus, with green appendages. The bracteole is 20 mm long but the calyx is shorter than described (only 8 mm long). Corolla is white, as described for C. aff. claviger. I believe this plant originated from one of the botanical gardens in Hawaii.

ACCESSION NOTES:
R2943 is the Costus aff. claviger from Aloha Tropicals. The origin of this plant is not known. This collection has been vouchered at the UC Berkeley, Jepsen Herbarium, UC2045835.
