This is a summer growing species from western Mexico. As the name implies
the leaves are fairly large, 2-3" across and remarkable in having about
seven narrow leaflets. I believe it generally flowers in late spring, just
before the leaves emerge or as they emerge. Flowers bright pink on robust
stalks. I've only grown it as a pot subject and it is quite reliable. It is
dormant winter-to-spring. Though it doubtless endures a dry rest in the
wild, it has grown well at UCBG in Berkeley for some years, out in the
garden in a semi-shaded position.

I am offering material of O. magnifica from Oaxaca, near Matatlan on my new
October list.
