Description

This is the restricted endemic of Malea in southern Greece (the next peninsula along to the east from the more well-known Mani).

It bears pale, wispy white flowers, some of which, rarely, have very faint flush of violet on the outer three petals. Like its perhaps more familar relative. C. goulimyi goulimyi, (from Mani) it flowers in the autumn. It retains the characteristic long tubes of the more well-known pale purple type species.

Easily grown in a sunny well-drained spot or pot producing its faintly pollen-scented flowers from spotted and streaked bracts, from the later half of September onwards.
