The lovely large leaf plant that is featured in many old plant books , has been 'lumped' together with several other similar looking plants in a group . It has been proved that they are all actually the same species even though the leaf is very different looking . They are named on the flowering parts , that is why Peter has showed us so many amazing different flowers for these . The 'new' watsoniana can be a difficult to grow .. mine has died down and only a few small ones grown back .|
Where the old one has thrived on neglect , with a few very mature plants growing in amongst the weeds where I had emptied a few old pots of media that must have contained an odd corm or 2 .
