PLANT FAMILY: Costaceae
BOTANICAL NAME: Costus erythrocrinus 'Eskimo Kiss'
FORMAL SCIENTIFIC NAME:
This is NOT a valid species name. I have not found this name ANYWHERE in the botanical literature, and do not know where they found this species name. It appears that this is an error on the Plant Group Hawaii and Stokes Tropicals websites.
Mark Collins collection(?), called 'Eskimo Kiss'. It is basal flowering, red non-appendaged bracts, yellow tubular flowers. Sold on his son (Colton Collins) website for Plant Group Hawaii, Inc., http://www.plantgrouphawaii.com.
