This species was described in 1959 by Edgar Irmischer. It is a rhizomatous species native to Brazil. It is said to be syn. with U304. The leaf undersides are a beautiful rosy pink, as are the stems. Foliage is greenish-purple, with cream or pale green leaf venation. The leaves grow very closely together, forming a compact mound. The leaves are tilted upwards in my experience. There are hundreds of hairs on each leaf, which are pink, giving the leaves a nice velvety feel.
Available plants are well rooted and growing in 2.5 inch pots. They have at least six leaves and will be shipped bare root.
