Have to trade: Costus 'Kiss of Death'

bihai(zone 9)February 3, 2008

I have a nice container with 3 well established stems of a rare costus to trade, Costus longibracteatus "Kiss of Death".

"Kiss of Death" is the name that was on the plant when I purchased it from Aloha Tropicals several years ago. Please see their website for photos, also I have a photo of the plant available here.

This is a very well established plant over a foot tall, not a rhizome or small cutting. This is a very neat costus, it gets 6-8 ft tall, the individual stems last forever and the leaves are deep green and covered in soft hairs, as are the stems. The blooms are very cool.

Please see my other post re: trading costus lazius Yellow Lollipop for more info about trading with me.
