Lobivia incaica

Most of the plants in this genus are found in Bolivia, and Lobivia is an anagram of Bolivia. This one, however, is from Peru. It can be difficult to get them to flower, because they need a resting phase. I guess this one has had its beauty sleep, because it is blooming in a serious way now at the UC Botanical Garden.
