Distributed by the Smithsonian Institution as USBRG 96-163, this collection is fairly compact and relatively free flowering.  It has quite stiff stems, with no tendency to trail.  It is a good potential hybridizing subject.  A closeup of a flower can be seen here, and other photos of the plant here and here.

The most widely distributed collection of this species has dark leaves and a somewhat different flower.
