Grown at Selby Gardens

This species is a member of the Pentadenia section of the genus. 

This photo nicely illustrates one of the characteristics of the Pentadenia group, the dramatically unequal size of the leaf pairs.   Alternating along the stem, one of each pair is very large, the other very small.
