Bomarea aff. distichophylla, 8 seeds
Possibly my favorite Bomarea as it is so different from most the other climbing Bomareas. A very unusual and rarely seen plant (probably originating from Peru) in this genus, it is more of a herbaceous perennial than a vine, blooming at just a height of 1 or 2 feet. The orangy-red flowers are borne in clusters at the tip of each stalk, like other Bomareas but the seed pods that form after blooming look like berries rather than the usual shower heads. No hardiness zone info, sorry. 2 feet tall and wide. Part shade. Regular water. Rich, well-drained soil. Exclusive, fresh seeds, harvested 10/2017.
