Reiter hybrid of A. megapotamicum with strongly held laterally weeping branches perfectly displaying the charming show of ranks of dangling flared large yellow blossoms highlighted by darker-toned throat (as long as not exposed to considerable warmth year round). Perfect for hanging baskets, most impressive in windowboxes or tall urns when a bold horizontal plane is imperative in your design scheme. While at its blooming height in the winter greenhouse, we like it because it blooms even on into the initial heat of our Ohio River Valley summer--something we cannot claim for other A. megapotamicum cultivars.
|Cultural Code||HP CGH|
Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.
If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.×
