From our friends at the San Francisco Botanical Garden (SFBG):
Due to our foggy weather here in San Francisco, the Garden is one of the only outdoor botanical gardens in the world where these endangered and alluring plants from the misty highland tropics can thrive ... so it's a very rare treat to see these plants in full bloom without having to climb the Andes ...these rarities are amongst the Garden's greatest treasures and our collection is critical to the conservation of many of these species.
