GueCal #127 Bomarea sp "Orange Delight"
Bomarea sp "Orange Delight"
This beautiful Bomarea hails from the Junin area of Colombia, & can be found on the roadside as you travel towards Barbarcoas. Its striking orange flowers with red spots attract hummingbirds which are its natural pollinators... This species produces tuber-like globes around its root crown which help it weather dry soil for a few months before it regrows into a long climbing vine with a terminal tip full of flowers!
