    Default Please help me decipher my Bc label

    Hi guys, I dislike posting a plant without a picture of the flower, but I didn't take one when it was in full bloom. However, I cannot decipher the label, it is a Bc ........It had 3-4 dark pink spidery blooms per inflorescence. When it was in bloom I had about 25 flowers in total

    I am attaching a photo of the plant and the label. Any help is appreciated

    Now that the taxonomic dust has settled, it's Brassocatanthe Punakea.
