I was the originator of this strain when I brought It back from Costa Rica in the mid 1990's. I passed on seed to Kristl Walek of Gardens North and from there it has made it's way into the trade. At least I'm glad they kept the name!

This was one of the best plants in my garden this year. I planted a two-inch plug in my partly-shaded front garden which has so-so soil in May, and to my surprise it grew into a 4-5 foot tall plant with two branches, each of which has been showcasing the lovely pink-and-white flowers since mid-July. It is now the first week of October, and it is still in bloom here in Canada!
