Aylostera tropaeolipicta (F. Ritter) Mosti & Papini

It is difficult to find the true Aylostera tropaeolipicta, as there is widespread in the marketplace a pink-flowered A. eos form which is given this name, and the number FR1114. I don’t know how the mistake originally happened but the pink-flowered plant is not Aylostera tropaeolipicta, which has orange “nasturtium-coloured” flowers. The mistake is widespread and we have so far obtained the wrong plants from 5 different nurseries in Germany, Czechia and the UK, and have grown seed from suppliers in Sweden and France, all producing the wrong plants.

The original description is here.

Plants of this species in the collection include:
