Chirita subrhomboidea x Chirita species 2
Photo by Toshijiro Okuto
This is a hybrid produced by Mr. Okuto. Both C. subrhomboidea and C. species 2 are available here in separate pages. See the discussion associated with C. subrhomboidea for general commentary on the group of relatively temperate Chiritas being grown and hybridized by Mr. Okuto.
Note the relatively small leaves on this cultivar, and the tip damage that is probably the result of winter temperatures approaching or reaching 0° C. Spring produces a great flush of bloom, in quantities not normally achieved by plants that are grown year-round at more tropical temperatures.
