Costus wilsonii is a high altitude Costus, growing up to 2000 meters in its home habitat in the Talamanca Mountains of Costa Rica and Panama. It has yellow bracts which sometimes turn reddish depending on the minerals in the soil. The flowers are bright yellow with red tips to the labellums. In habitat I have seen it growing in shady forest understory on ridges or steep slopes and in heavy leaf mulch.
It grows to about 1 1/2 meters tall and is fairly easy to grow and bring to flower. I thought it might not be heat tolerant, but has survived and even thrived a couple of hot Tallahassee summers with no problem.
