A semiscandent or erect shrub endemic to Andean Ecuador. Most of the 15 known subpopulations are distributed in the central Andes and some are near the Parque Nacional Sangay and the Reserva de Producción Faunística Chimborazo. The principal threat is ongoing deforestation, but the eruption of the Tungurahua volcano could destroy most of the Tungurahua subpopulations.
