Chirita 'Moonlight'

Photo by John Boggan
Grown at the Smithsonian Institution greenhouses

This is a hybrid by John Boggan of C. sinensis 'Hisako' and C. spadiciformis.  Like the sinensis parent, it has nicely silvered leaves, but the flowers are much larger and it appears to be easier to bloom.  A photo nicely illustrating the unusual foliage can be see here.
