PLANT FAMILY: Costaceae
BOTANICAL NAME: Costus 'Beliz Yellow'
FORMAL SCIENTIFIC NAME:
STATUS :
CONTINENT: Neotropical
SYNONYMS:


BOTANICAL NOTES:
This is a Mark Collins cultivar, now listed by his son Colton Collins. The spelling of Belize has varied, but is assumed that it was intended to be spelled like the country Belize. Flower shape and color indicates a Costus scaber type flower.

ACCESSION NOTES:
R3004 - plant received from Jackie Petrov who received from Mark Collins prior to 2004. This plant seems to be quite cold hardy and has been used for several hybrids.

GINGERSRUS CATALOG LISTING:
Little is known about this Mark Collins collection, but I am assuming it is from the country Belize, based on the name. Mark had it listed on his website with a "t" in the spelling, but I am listing it here as "Belize". It has a Costus scaber type flower but the yellow bracts make it distinctive. It is possibly a hybrid of C. scaber and something else, but the actual collection location is not known.

I have never tested it for hardiness but chances are it will turn out to be hardy to about zone 8-B based on its similarity to the standard Costus scaber.
