I collected this plant in Peru in two places, both not far from Iquitos, along the Amazon River and also near the Rio Mazon. It is a very desirable plant as it remains fairly compact, less than 5 feet tall and produces showy C. guanaiensis type flowers with pretty "crinkly" bract appendages forming a pleasing rosette. The foliage has thick soft hairs and the leaves are broad and closely spaced making it a good foliage plant. This plant will be ideal for the greenhouse or as a specimen plant in a tropical garden.
