Cheilocostus 'OrangeSherbet' flower This is another form of Cheilocostus globosus, from the Mark Collins collection. To my knowledge, Mark did not have a cultivar name for this plant, but I am naming it 'Orange Sherbet' to reflect the bright orange labellums. It grows to about 6 feet tall with many branching stems giving it a bushy appearance. The flowers are basal, arising from the rhizomes, but they are bright and colorful enough to show up well on the plant. This plant is probably not hardy in areas where the temperatures get down to freezing, but it is easy to grow in pots and can be overwintered in a greenhouse or sun porch.
