Calathea Warszewiczii

Its ornamental leaves with a velvety feel are the major attraction of this Calathea. The flowers are white, but the colour of the bracts ranges from white to deep pink. It was named for Jozef Warszewicz, a Polish-Lithuanian plant collector who worked in South America and later became Inspector of the botanic gardens in Krakow.
