A truly striking hardy hybrid between a Bhutanese species and B. grandis. This has much of the latter species' visual appearance, but produces much larger, thicker textured leaves up to 48 x 35.5cm. The latter are most handsomely net-veined in red beneath and are held on red-banded green stems, topped in late summer/early autumn by pink flowers above the foliage. Hardy in the ground, like B. grandis, and remarkably drought tolerant once fully established. Height up to at least 80cm. Fabulous.
