This natural hybrid was developed by Tom Wood. I purchased one of these plants when I visited his farm in Archer, Florida. He told me that it was going to be very large and quite beautiful when in bloom, and boy was he correct. These massive inflorescences may be four inches in diameter. The very large leaves grow up to two feet by one foot... a real whopper and a beauty.
