This is a glossy-leaved beauty with indumentum (hairs on the leaf underside) that is among the thickest and darkest in the genus. The plant comes from seed produced by combining two of the best forms available. The blosom is white flushed with pastels. The truss nestles close against the collar of leaves, making a stunning show.
Grow this plant for its foliage – a year around delight that makes a clothed to the ground ball if grown in an open space. This is a tough plant which can take a fair amount of sun (but don’t cook it)
R. bureavii branches readily and makes a bold statement that always draws attention.
