This is a beautiful Steve Correale hybrid of chiapensis crossed with capitata rubra.  This plant can stay in blush year round with adequate light, and while the inflorescence is predominantly capitata influenced (as most capitata hybrids are), you still get those classic chiapensis bracts that poke their heads out.  Nice scurfy leaves, this is a great collector's item.  

 

Only one available, the plant pictured is what you'll receive (about 8" across)
