Anyone that has every been in my Pinkhouse knows that I have way too many pulcherrimas. I am fascinated by this species and its variable colour forms. I do have a several of a form that I find very unusual from its growth pattern to its flowers size. I believe it to be pulcherrima var. laotica They were imported from the northern part of the Khon Kaen province.
pulcherrima var. laotica?
The laotica is on the right with the rounder short leaves, on it left is a standard pulcherrima. They are grown beside each other and I have had both for several years.
laotica on the left standard sized on the right
coerulea form and peloric form
