Recchara Monument Valley

A remarkable combination of BLC. Bryce Canyon 'Splendiferous', AM/AOS and Schomburgkia superbiens, the "Flor De La Candeleria" of Chiapas. The rich purple and gold throat of the BLC have combined with the taller cluster of the Schomburgkia to produce a one of a kind specimen everyone likes. Temperature Tolerant.

The above is a quote from the SBOE web site where they sell this one for $50 and up.. A few years ago it was on their $7.50 table and I bought 3 of them. One didn't make it, one got traded away so this is the only one I have left. Big rambling plant, long stalks, the influence of SCK suberbiens. Reliable bloomer.

Lovely blooms. And a great steal. I wish I was near a place like SBOE.

I agree, easy to grow. I have it on a branch. It does get big. SBOE still has it for sale.

Right but you are getting a blooming sized plant. We bought it for $7.50 7 years ago and got 2 small pbulbs.
