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


BOTANICAL NOTES:
During my 2013 trip to Costa Rica, Reinaldo Aquilar (noted self-taught botanist on the Osa Peninsula) showed me a plant he had discovered and could not identify. After examining the plant, I have concluded it is likely a natural hybrid of Costus pulverulentus with another species, possibly with Costus lima. If we are successful in propagating this plant, it will be introduced under the cultivar name of Costus 'Reinaldo'.
