BOTANICAL NOTES:
Costus 'Pink Floyd' - On the main road into the Rio Nangaritza area we saw many hundreds of the white flowered C. guanaiensis plant that has nearly colonized parts of the region. As we sped by, Marco Jiménez suddenly noticed one he said was all pink, but we were going too fast and did not stop then. Over the next two days we were laughing and talking about his "Pink Floyd" plant and his father told how he used to have a Pink Floyd album but it disappeared after he got married - his wife did not like rock music. Anyhow, on the way back out Marco tried to spot it again and we stopped. So this one has earned the cultivar name 'Pink Floyd' if it is successfully propagated and stays true to color. We believe it to be a hybrid with Costus amazonicus that is also common in the area and was seen just across the road. Thumbnail sheet is athttp://www.gingersrus.com/images/P7593
