HAWAII - CULTIVATED
Shrub grown from seed collected at UH Manoa growout facility. Potted plant
incorrectly labeled as Lebronnecia
kokioides. Either an unusual form of Talipariti
tiliaceus or related species. Leaves stiff & entirely
glabrous, 10cm long, new leaves light green, large oval bracts at leaf axils, petals
2.5 inches long, corolla opening halfway, fading red. Apparently
self-incompatible, pollination attempts fail to produce seed.
