Grown from seed from Dan Hinkley's garden, raised by Crug Farm Plants.
The species comes from the Bolivian altiplano and the northern Cordilleras of Argentina from 1,600 to 3,300m altitude. A low growing
non-climbing species with leathery slightly glaucous leaves.
Distinctive salmon flowers with green tips. It is a little unfortunate that they do not seem to match the species description.
