DESCRIPTION:
This accession grows to about 3 meters tall. Hairs on sheath, ligule, petiole and leaves are shorter than the normal villose hairs of this species. Inflorescence is terminal on leafy sheath and is different from typical example of this species. The bracts are green and appendaged, but the appendages begin farther up the exposed part of the bracts and extend outward at about 90 degree from the bracts instead of being upright. The yellow flowers also differ from the normal type for this species with an open labellum but not spreading as much as typical.
