Tupistra aurantiaca 'BSWJ 2401'

Also called Campylandra aurantiaca, arrived this morning. Quite fascinating.

Rohdea is a barely known genus of leafy delights, and Tupistra is its less well known cousin.

I love the comfortable arching clumps of leaves, and it has been vigorous and divided freely. Introduced to cultivation in 1994 by Bleddyn and Sue Wynn-Jones from Sikkim.

It has grown well for me in the same moist shady conditions that the Rohdea like and flowered well, but it hasn't set seed yet. I have just obtained a little friend for it, that I hope is a different clone, in case it needs that special encouragement that only a toy-boy can offer!
