Roscoea purpurea 'Peacock Eye'

26th August 2005

Roscoea purpurea 'Peacock Eye' seems to be very like 'Peacock'. My plant is paler in flower , taller and with paler stems. This is not entirely in accord with the various descriptions that have been circulated, but the descriptions available do not agree with eachother particularly closely. I was expecting a plant with a white spot on the labellum near to the mouth. I imagine this plant was grown from seed, and that the spottedness is unreliable.
